My family created a most beautiful and delicious dinner for my birthday - how lucky am I!
Here you see: thai chicken pizza (Rachael Ray recipe); potato crostini, salmon with herb sabayon, and praline pecan, beet, and mozzarella cheese salad. The potato, salmon, and beet recipes were from "Small Plates for Sharing" , from the Practical Gourmet. We also had Dukkah Beef Skewers (not pictured).
And isn't the beet salad a work of art? I LOVE beets!

Our Christmas miracle came on December 20th, 2011. Scott was on his was home from the office, on the I-55, going about 60 mph, when all of a sudden, he saw the car in front of him was stopped in traffic. He crashed into the car, and the next thing he remembers, he found himself in the center ditch. He landed "on all fours", his air bag had gone off, and he was FINE!!!

Aren't they a good-looking group? As you can see, not everyone was able to attend this year - I have it on the last day of school, and some have already left town for the holidays - but we still had fun! Seen above, left to right, front row: Katie, Becky, and Madi. Middle row, left to right: Lucas, Kyeon, Miles, and Jill. Back row, left to right: Tyler, myself, Ian, Emery, Ella, and Will.
It is so fun to see these kids grow up. They are all delightful kids and it is my pleasure to teach them. Yay Christmas piano party 2011!
