Luckily, I am blessed with a husband who cooks. A husband who likes to cook. Heron comes home from a full day of teaching and almost immediately begins rifling through cookbooks and back issues of Cooks Illustrated. He is an adventurous cook and isn't afraid to attempt new and complicated dishes. But tonight? Fried chicken and biscuits!
My brother-in-law, Damon, and his longtime squeeze, Molly, (who, by the way, I refer to as my sister-in-law, just for future reference!) joined us for this feast. They are both fabulous cooks, also, and together they created a deliciously crunchy fennel-greens-citrus-walnut salad with some kind of balsamic-y dressing. All in all a real treat of a meal.

After the meal Kieran treated us to some singing and dress-up performances. Here he is as a "killer gnome". (His term, not mine. Should I be worried?)

This week will be busy with last minute Christmas craftiness. Wish me luck!
