"Pig? For me?"
Looks like Hambone wants in on Kenji's suckling pig action. As would the rest of the Serious Eats office.
"Porchetta? For me?"
He wants porchetta too, of course.
And now we feast
Kenji brought his deep-fried, sous-vide porchetta to the office for everyone to try. Yup, we love him.
Many pork comas ensured.
Sugar cookie tasting
What's the best brand of sugar cookie mix? Our "Mixed Review" columnist Lucy Baker brought in cookies made from five different mixes for us to taste. Results coming soon!
Philly donut delivery
Ed went to Philly for the day and came back with fried chicken and doughnuts from Federal Donuts. "This is my contribution to the cookie swap." —Ed. (Next thought: why haven't we organized a donut swap yet?)
Deck the halls
Cookie swap, this way!
We didn't want anyone to get lost and, god forbid, bring their cookies to some other office party.
There were nearly 40 kinds of cookies at our cookie swap. We might need a bigger table next year.
Not sure if you want a baby? LOOK AT THIS FACE. Sure, you want a baby.
Because two baby photos aren't enough
Alaina, keeper of the babies!
Hambone's safe spot
This is one of the saddest-looking photos of Hambone we've ever seen. He had fun at the party, but his droopy face erased all evidence of happiness.
Finally, we can use all that excess cereal
We ended our Friday night with a gingerbread (or graham cracker, rather) house-making session.
