The Radicchio and Arugula Salad

For this recipe I made a variation of a recipe for radicchio and arugula salad I found on Epicurious. Instead of hazelnuts I opted for mixed nuts and instead of balsamic and red wine vinegars I went for cider and white wine vinegars.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Place the mixed nuts on a roasting pan (or in this case a pie tin) and bake for 20 minutes or so. 

Chop roughly. 

Mix the dressing. 

Give the arugula a nice slicing after you give the radicchio a rough chopping. 

Quarter the dates. 

Add some feta and you're done!

I have to add that in November I took a course on knife skills. I'll write about that soon.

The Thanksgiving Dinner

It's time for Thanksgiving! Okay, that was a few weeks ago, but for your edification here are my pictures from the event.

Mince pie (by me) and pear & cranberry pie (by the Thrifty Sifter). 

The Thrifty Sifter is excited by my Mother's turkey. 



You really don't need to know all the family secrets.
