I’ve been a bit of a TV junkie of late watching the Olympics in prime time, pushing the limits of my shut eye. After this week comes the Academy Awards on March 7th, which is another excuse to create a party around a food theme. Certainly with Julie and Julia in the mix we will see Boeuf Bourguignon or this lovely adaptation of pumpkin soup from Shirley at GFE. For the Oscars, I tend to lean toward a variety of nibbles and small plates – don’t want to miss a glimpse of George Clooney! – and one of my favorite winter snacks are fresh baked kale chips.
