Jillian and I had a TV party a couple of weeks ago, too, and we…went a little crazy with the food that we made.
I made Cherry Cheesecake Scones (white chocolate-cherry scones with chunks of actual cheesecake baked in them), Apple Cheddar Beer (Cider) Bread (very nice – sweet and savory at the same time), Blueberry Goat Cheese Focaccia (also tasty – and pretty easy, too, which was a nice surprise), and a Chocolate Babka (which was unexpectedly and hilariously huge – but also very tasty, sweet but not too sweet, though I think the cream cheese filling could have actually used a bit of sugar). Jillian brought her famous cheesy bread, adapted from this version at Simply Recipes, Shrimp With Fennel (which was very yummy – with a nice bit of heat to it), and gorgeous Corn Cakes With Avocado Salsa (holy cats, yum!).
We could barely make it through two rounds of food, but it was worth the food comas we had by the time we were done. And they didn’t stop us from picking away at thirds (and fourths). Combine all this yummy food with an afternoon of Parks and Rec and Veep and it was very nearly a perfect day!
