Something deliciously fattening

Our friends had us over for a brunch on Sunday, and of course you have to bring something. I knew our friends would be making tons of meat (her hubby is a little carnivore) and I needed to clear out our fridge in anticipation of hubby and me taking trips. So after scouring the internet, I fell back on my favourite site, Epicurious.com for inspiration. Needless to say, they didn't disappoint. I followed the reviewer's suggestions in splitting the recipe in half, but made sure I followed the instructions of using a souffle dish to make the sundried tomato and pesto torta. Didnt' turn out quite as pretty as the picture shows, but hey, it tasted good and that's all that matters, right?

The rest of the food was fabulous too, but you can never go wrong, according to our Polish host, with sausages, pork, and potatoes. I have to agree with him on that one.

That looks good, except for the pine nuts. I printed it off for later use. Thanks!

Mmm, I'll have to save the recipe too since we have a ton of sundried tomatoes (had a bumper crop of grape tomatoes this year), and we still have pesto left over from last year. Alas, we were too busy this year to make pesto so we will run out of it soon.

We had bratwurst tonight...yeah, sausages, ya just can't go wrong with it (unless you undercook it and your guests end up in ER). ;>

You're not into pinenuts Rosie? I like them and my friend's hubby is allergic to nuts, so that's the only type he can toldrate.

What, no pesto this year? What did you do with the basil? I swear, next year I'm growing my basil indoors, where it's sunny but doesn't get cool mornings. I've never had much luck with basil.

I love grape tomatoes, but I never buy them cuz I don't know what they're sprayed with. Mmmm, sausages!

Hey, I had to restrict my blog because I have someone reading my posts that I would rather not have on there. The only way to read it or comment on it is to submit your email to me so that I can invite you. That's up to you, though. I think I still have your email in my computer. Anyway, I am so sorry about this.
