Oh, and Friday night I went to a housewarming party. Figuring that bringing alcohol to this particular friend was a bit too coals to Newcastle, I made nuts. I planned on one batch of sweet and one spicy- the Nuts on a Hot Tin Roof (I did not make that up) from Stop and Smell The Rosemary, and the lacquered almonds from Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone. TJ's did not have blanched almonds, though, so I made the gourmet pecans, also from Stop and Smell The Rosemary, and they were my favorite nuts ever and made too many to fit in the pretty dollar store jars I bought to put them in, so it all worked out.

I wish I had a gourmet pecan right now, in fact. Those Junior Leaguers know party food.
