Appetizers


I made this for the first time several months ago; once again borrowing recipes from Smitten Kitchen. She talks about diving into a cookbook with such glee that it makes me want to start buying cookbooks. While I love fussy food, I never seem to want to make anything I see in a cook book. But this recipe is far from fussy in my opinion. From “Honey what’s for dinner? We’re out of food.” to “Dinner’s ready.” was thirty minutes at the most. Even with my gimpy food processor. So here’s the recipe, complete with her notes on the bottom!

So the galettes I’m posting are a little small, well, too small to serve 8 atleast. For the party last night I made two kinds. The butternut squash one I posted last night and this one with cabbage and mushrooms.

I pretty much said all I had to say about these yesterday. I will say that I should have used more dough on this one, I don’t know if its really more or if I just used too much cabbage… Alos, it’s really good with the horseraddish sauce so don’t leave it in the fridge and forget about it like I did.

It’s game night over here. Every month or so we try to get friends over or we go over there, have dinner, play some board games and catch up. It was at my house this time around so I got to make the fancy food.

I made pastry dough from scratch!!!! No really this is a big deal for me. I’m a big fan of refrigerated dough. You know that cranberry pie I gave you yesterday? This year I might make dough myself. I’ve fallen in love with this pastry recipe. It turned out really light and flaky.
