Some Scenes from Millie’s Shindig




High Point – The white bean chicken chili was incredibly yummy. (I can say this without being a braggart, as aside from selecting the recipe, Bryan did all the actual work – I’m realizing this has become a mini-theme in the past couple of posts...sad.) He tweaked the recipe a bit to add more flavor, specifically reversing the amounts of half and half and chicken broth and amping up the spices a bit.

Overall it was a major crowd pleaser, which is good, as I was pretty nervous going in based on what we now commonly refer to as the “Great White Bean Chicken Chili Incident of 2002”, when we made a massive pot, only to realize as we were spooning it up to 20 guests that the chili powder was rancid. Thank goodness for the deli at Central Market.

Low Point -- I have A LOT of Sprinkles cupcakes leftover, and I can’t stop eating them. It’s a bad scene over here people. I’m going to need a Sprinkles intervention shortly. They’re pretty darn amazing.

And yes, sweet Millie did seem to have an awful lot of fun.
