I feel pretty bad that I didn't take a picture of Casey's baked potato stir-fry. I really liked it. He diced potatoes and baked them with jalapeno, bell pepper and onion. He also made the gravy in a garlic-onion roux. As for my contribution I made a green bean salad and a brussel sprout stir fry. Both were pretty good, though I liked the brussel sprouts much better. Which is good since I bought way too many. I really don't feel like posting the recipe but I linked them. Both recipes are from Bon Appetite, again. The cranberry pie was a pleasant surprise. The only thing I do with cranberries is open the can of jellied cranberry and put it in a pretty dish. Cooking with cranberries is actually totally alien to me. But this was amazing. Not to sweet, but not too tart, and you gotta love the 'yum'. Thanks Abby!
