This year, we decided to ditch the usual turkey in favor of a French-themed feast. Here’s the menu:
Okay… perhaps French-themed is a stretch, but it will definitely make a nice change from turkey!
One of my other hobbies is cooking, and I’ve been collecting recipes for a while now. As I try new recipes, I re-write the ones I like into my own online cookbook. Naturally, being a software engineer, I created a little website to keep them organized. Of course, having the source code on my hard drive, I was just one command-line command away from having a version-controlled repository using git. From there, it was an easy step to publish it to GitHub, and from there to activate the GitHub Pages feature to make it a public website.
Besides being intensely geeky, this has actually been super helpful! I’ve found myself at a friend’s house where we decide we want to cook something together, or I’ve wanted to share a recipe with someone. This makes it super easy to do so. So… I’m sharing my latest addition with you!
I didn’t actually make up the recipe (you can see the source at the bottom), but I have adjusted it a bit to suit my own taste, and I re-arranged it to fit into my cookbook’s design. Enjoy!
