WEverb - Cook

This was the best meal I made all year, not to be done by
single dishes throughout the year, but this complete meal sourced from the Alemany Farmer's Market was the perfect spot of fall.  Even without falling leaves, I had a taste of Autumn. Here's the menu with links to the recipes:

Appetizer - Cranberry and Ham Wrap Pinwheels (brought by a friend, sorry I don't have the recipe for this one, but I believe it was wraps, spread with creamcheese, sprinkled with dried cranberries, deli ham laid on top, rolled up and cut width wise)

Salad - Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad (even Mr. P who generally refrains from Brussels, couldn't resist this salad - the Brussels are shaved so thin and are fresh!)

Kale & Brussels Sprout Salad

Main Course - Roast Chicken with Lemon and Thyme (I skipped the tarragon) and Potato and Celery Root Gratin with Leeks (I skipped the celery root)

Dessert - Pecan, Bourbon and Butterscotch Bread Pudding (I planned this as the dessert, but didn't realize I needed to soak the bread overnight - I made a last minute substitution and served the sauce over organic vanilla ice cream in crystal champagne glasses! Hopefully the fancy made up for the lack of bread pudding? Who am I kidding, classes don't make up for bread pudding!!!)
