Apparently, I neglected to post a few pictures from the Tuesday night dinner party. I whipped up some cashew cream with fiddleheads early in the day and kind of forgot that I had it. It meant that we just used it to dip some raw carrots in, which was fine but far less dramatic then I had originally imagined. Jamie was slightly afraid of the fiddleheads.
I have struggled with pies for a long time. In fact, I struggle as baker regularly. Recently, at Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe, Laura of Abracapocus fame, and I conversed about my inability to follow directions and its connection to baking. In an attempt to think outside of the box, I made a deconstructed strawberry rhubarb pie. I used my nana 's pie recipe to make a flat crust. Then I made a thick "jam" with the strawberries and rhubarb and spooned it out over the top. It came out really well and I was happy with it. Not quite as good as an actual pie but sometimes you have to know your limits.
