1st annual Scott's Soup and Sing a Long

Now I'm not one to brag, ok, I am. Last night we had our first holiday party. We invited about 30 or 40 folks that we work with or have made friends with here in the Yazoo area. Heath's sister in law has hosted a long tradition of soup and drinks then a drive to 3 or 4 homes to carol. Before joining the Scott family I'd only gone caroling with my church as a kid...and that nearly never included liquor! We decided to borrow that tradition and make a move to take our neighborhood by storm.

We set out walking and stopped at about 5 houses. You can imagine the sight...30 people, one guitar and an accordion. After an hour or so of wandering the neighborhood and serial caroling we came back to the house for soup, drinks and snacks. I'm going to lay out a few of the snacks that we had.

Chevre Tart: 1 package GOAT CHEESE broken up and mixed with fresh herbs. I used BASIL, DILL AND THYME because its what I had. I used premade FILLO DOUGH CUPS. into those I layered CARAMELIZED ONIONS, the GOAT CHEESE, and CARAMELIZED DICED PEARS. YUM!

Easy Sweets: 2 packages of crushed GRAHAM CRACKERS, 2 cups of CHOCOLATE CHIPS, 2 cans of SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK. mix together and pour into a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Easy!

Lamb Chops: I removed the silverskin from 4 racks of LAMB. I coated each with BASIL INFUSED OLIVE OIL. I mixed together GARAM MASALA, UBON'S SEASON'T UP, AND A LITTLE KOSHER SALT. I coated the lamb with this rub. Beginning with the fat side down, I seared the lamb in OLIVE OIL. After it had a nice crust, I flipped the lamb and did the same thing to the other side. I removed the lamb from the pan and let it sit at room temp for about 2 hours. I put the lamb into a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes and cooked the lamb to rare. When we removed it from the oven, we allowed it to cool for about 15 minutes before cutting into chops. I served with a mustard sauce: YELLOW MUSTARD, CREOLE MUSTARD AND HOMEMADE JELLY. about 3 tsps each mixed together and served on the side.

Over the Top Cocoa: 2 quarts of WATER, 2 cups of COCOA MIX, into a crockpot. to each cup add a shot of GODIVA LIQUEUR, and one shot of CARAMEL LIQUEUR.

Snowflake Martini: for a pitcher, 3 cups of WHITE CRANBERRY JUICE, 2 cups of VODKA, 1 cup of COINTREAU. Shake and Serve with a cranberry floating in the drink

Pictures later!
