Marinated Barbecue Lamb with Mint Chimichuri Sauce and Cauliflower Gratin
We are still waiting to move in to the Mid Century Modern home (affectionately known as The Money Pit) that we are remodeling.

We haven’t even had a chance to use it yet (except once when we boiled water.) And now it doesn’t work, even though the repairman has been there three times and plans on coming out this week. Sigh. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. (If you want to read about our remodeling “adventures” you can find it here.)
Happy Holiday Home tour
I didn’t have time today to make another treat, because I did an elf photo shoot. They are absolutely the worst kind of subject. Most of my conversation and instruction went like this: “Hey!

Marinated Strawberry Salad with arugula, Fennel and Pepitas
I think love and strawberries go together. After all, you can dip strawberries in chocolate, or drop them into champagne, or slice them up and serve with ice cream drizzled with chocolate.
