Dinner Party!


Dinner party tomorrow night: us, two members of my critique group, and my IT person (translation: three of my close friends). Wanna hear the menu? Suuure you do. We’re all girls here, right? Here it is:

  • Niman Ranch filet mignon (which I took a picture of so you can see how purty it is) with sauteed crimini mushrooms and mustard butter
  • Kale salad from my garden, with pine nuts, heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, and avocado
  • Roasted Russian fingerling potatoes with pesto that I made from the basil in my garden
  • Acme Bakery baguette
  • Peach/blueberry cobbler with vanilla bean gelato

Doesn’t that sound tasty? This is the big upside of living in Berkeley. And the best part is, it’s all really simple, since I hate to spend a long time cooking these days.  I’ll make the kale salad and the cobbler tomorrow morning, and everything else I can do easily in half an hour.

You can tell by this post that I haven’t been cooking much (at all) lately. :) Hubby will be happy.
