This past Saturday we attended the annual holiday potluck of one of our friends. She hosts every year and Sean, being the amazing chef he is, brings the meat. He always does a wonderful job and considering all the diet needs of the group he always makes sure everyone is included somehow in the protein. This year Sean cooked up pork belly with a side of red snapper. Delicious! (He’s out of town right now, but when he gets back I’ll ask him if we can link the recipe if you’re curious.)
You’re always your harshest critic, aren’t you? Sean had a little wishlist of things he’d have done differently or things he wanted to work out better, but the diners around the table sure did love it. Way high praise. The snapper was good too, but I think the pork stole the show.
New this year was a Secret Santa gift exchange, which turned out to be fun. Sean walked away with a new Christmas bow tie (!) and I with a set of olive oil-based dippers. And as I write this I realized I missed an opportunity with Sean out of town to eat a dinner of bread and dippers last night. I love dipping. Well, I’m confident this opportunity will arise again and I will get my very nutritious dinner of bread and dips.All in all a very fun night with a great group of people.
