So it's torture that I have no idea if we'll have a baby by then! Will we? Won't we? Ack!
That said, Rush's mom has volunteered to take on cooking the meal, but of course, if I'm not pregnant, I want to cook it (or at least help).
One of my non-negotiables is this cranberry sauce recipe from the original Domino mag. So easy and so delicious - esp when served as a sort of jam on leftover rolls the day after...
(1) 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup water
Wash the cranberries, remove any stems and throw out any squishy berries. Strain and put in a medium pot. Slice the clementine in half through the equator and then into razor-thin slices. Add the clementine, water and sugar to the cranberries.
Stir and heat on medium to a boil. After it reaches boiling, let it boil for a few seconds until you can tell the berries are starting to burst. Reduce heat to simmer and let simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Sauce with thicken a bit as it cools. You can make this a day or two in advance and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator.
