Yesterday was rainy--really rainy--but we were cozy inside with good friends and warm food. The night before I put together a big strata, with layers of bread, cheese, onions and peppers and then soaked in a mixture of milk and eggs. This was refrigerated and then popped into the oven about an hour before everyone arrived. It came out puffed up and golden, a savory, delicious sort of bread pudding.
I also made a coffee cake that included lots of fresh ginger and was swirled with crunchy pecans and brown sugar.
We also had a big berry salad--blueberries, raspberries and strawberries--a couple of different cheeses, and, of course, lots of coffee.
