For the graduation party, I served chocolate-covered strawberries from the Joy of Cooking.

Yep, life is really hard. Chocolate-covered strawberries don't help. Down with chocolate-covered strawberries.
|puffy, buttery perfection|
But the most delicious thing I made for the party: brandy alexanders. The picture I took of my brandy alexander is so atrocious I couldn't post it. That's pretty bad because my standards, as we all know, are not high. This is what brandy alexanders look like. Beautiful.
Now I just need to try a pink squirrel, a zombie, and a Singapore sling and I can stop drinking altogether.
|Mark bought this for the party. Not half bad.|

Nah. But a very easy, cheap, and tasty meal. I often have leftover rice and would not make fried rice if I didn't, so the wizardry of this dish is lost on me. But I did really love those pungent, crispy pebbles of garlic and ginger. They'd be a great addition to any fried rice. I'm making this again tonight. Recipe here.
