the dinner party

09Jul08

the menu from the hot weather dinner party

manchego, quince paste, baguette, and grapes

caprese salad

butter leaf salad with breakfast radishes and a balsamic vinaigrette

spaghetti carbonara

homemade strawberry ice cream

homemade raspberry lambic sorbet

it was very successful! i was worried that the pasta would be too heavy, but no one seemed to care about that. i think that everyone secretly always wants bacon and pasta, or as my husband refers to it ‘bacony pasta.’

it is really hot today and i wish i still had some of the sorbet or ice cream left…

i guess i’ll have to make do with this instead:

two of my favorite things coming together! stephen colbert AND ice cream!! once the colbert report comes back with new episodes next week my life will be complete.

    Caprese salad…serious yum. Makes me wish my tomatoes were ripe…might have to hit the farmer’s market.
