Last Saturday night we hosted a wimsy little dinner party. We were celebrating a friend, Marlon, that is moving away from the City for the summer. Our timing was perfect -- before National Vegetarian Week and on the day predicted to be the end of the world.
I had a hoot with the planning. I made a tablecloth from Marimekko's Unikko colorway in blue. The table was set with our lovely new dishes, some older pieces & vintage things. Each bite of dinner was delish but the company was better. Thankfully, it was not our last supper -- I can't wait to throw the next party;-).
Here's what was on the menu:
- kid "caprese" salad (arugula, tomato, pesto, mozzarella)
- pink bean chili (cooked in the crockpot overnight)
- PLG dogs (veggie hotdogs w/ a bar of toppings)
- pom frites (yummy)
- vanilla ice cream & bailey's brownies w/ dried fruit & nuts (my new favorite desert to make)
