So every year my mother and I compete against eachother on thanksgiving dinner (the actual name for our little shindig is: The Autumn Extravaganza: Third Annual Chefs Compete Competition
- sounds fancy, right?!). The contest isnt on the entire meal, my grandmother makes the turkey and my mom and I compete in 3 categories: Appetizer, side dish and dessert. There are score cards and a trophy - the whole 9 yards. and we take it VERY seriously
Anyway - Ive been so swamped with work and grad school and planning my wedding that i havent been able to find a kick-ass appetizer recipe. I have a good side dish and dessert, so I was wondering if anyone has any amazing, impressive
, to die for appetizers...?
Please please send them my way!!! (p.s. If i win, i promise to make mention of anyone who assisted me in my winners speech)
In case anyone's wondering, my side dish will be my own variation on these autumn leaf shaped pockets filled with roasted root vegetables http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/4188/380/1600/IMG_6910.jpg
and my dessert will be Maple Walnut cupcakes with a ginger cream cheese frosting.
