Lamb, Couscous, and Broccolini
For Christmas dinner I made a combination of favorite recipes and new, improvised ideas. I had found a great persimmon salad recipe, but since there were no persimmons to be found I adapted the salad to a winter citrus salad with fennel, red onions, radishes, butter lettuce, goat cheese, and pistachios. For the main course I made Ina Garten's rack of lamb persillade, with roasted broccolini, and saffron couscous with scallions and pine nuts. Dessert was brown butter blondies with chocolate chips and vanilla ice cream.
