Went to the best dinner party ever last night. Like best ever ever! Thank you Vicky for treating us to your extraordinary talent. Your Christmas dinner gets better and better every year. I nominate you for the next season of Top Chef.
You’ll notice no food pictures. I was too busy rolling up my sleeves, preparing to feast on crab.
I mean, move over Saison. Seriously, check out this fine dining line-up we had the honor of experiencing:
mushroom truffle soup (I am not a soup person, but this could possibly be one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.)
burrata over a bed of arugula with shaved truffle (Who doesn’t love burrata?!)
striped bass baked in salt (So fresh and tasty)
black pepper crab (I went bananas for this black pepper crab.)
latkes with apple sauce and sour cream (Fried-to-perfection crispiness, best latkes ever)
breaded roast beef (At this point, I was stuffed but had a couple bites – oh man, I wish I could have expanded my tummy)
After I’d expended all that energy opening and closing my mouth, I finally had a chance to get to my purse, grab my camera, and snap a couple pics of the white elephant exchange. Melanie was kind enough to give me her prized glass fish. I am so putting that shit in my cube at work!
We scored with a smorgasbord of goodies including a high-quality pink toilet seat to replace the flimsy piece of crap that was installed when our apartment was renovated—all new stuff, but bad quality. LOVE this new toilet seat! And pink is my favorite color.
