Santacon and Sausage Balls

Holiday spirit, I have arrived. Basically, give me an excuse to throw or attend a party and I’m there. Before leaving the Bay there were a few small festivities I had to get out of the way….

I contributed this chipotle pulled pork delight with chimichurri sauce which is basically cilantro pesto made with 2 bunches of cilantro, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 1/2 lemons, Extra Virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. It goes on everything……

There was also a little carne asada tri tip from Trader Joe’s. Who doesn’t want meat with a side of meat?
