After our "battles" of cooking for Thanksgiving, holiday parties, and Christmas, I think it's time we have a little post mortem of our own! What did you cook that was awesome? What did someone else cook that was awesome? Discover a new bakery or source of ham? Share with us your battle scars!
Here's something I added to my holiday cooking that I can highly recommend: Arugula, Pear, and Goat Cheese Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette
With all the heavy comfort foods that are traditional with Thanksgiving and Christmas, I certainly had been hankering for something light, green, and healthy. If you bring this to several potlucks, it makes getting yourself a box of Harry and David's Pears more than worthwhile...and with the arugula and pomegranate seeds, it looks like you're eating Christmas holly!
