This year in lieu of buying gifts we decided to throw a big Christmas party for our friends. Now usually when I say "party" it's a "bring some food to my house" kinda party because I am not the kind of cook who can handle multiple dishes. Or I should say I wasn't the kind of cook who handled mutliple dishes. Yesterday we turned our house into a taqueria and dished out Rick Bayless' best for 30 of our nearest and dearest friends. I'm pretty freaking proud that everything was warm, done on time an delicious so I won't bother with false humility. We had a party, I cooked all the food and it rocked!
