The place mats are from Pier One.
On Saturday, Alie had to buy a car…this southern California!
It gets great gas mileage.
On Sunday, her former room-mate’s family was in town
and we invited them to dinner.
This book was used for menu inspiration.
Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus (from here)
Minted Pea Soup with Proscuitto and Creme Fraiche*
Heirloom Tomato, Burrata, Basil Salad*
Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Vegetables*
Carol’s Coffee Ice Cream Pie with Caramel Sauce
* from the above book
The first two appetizers were passed around outside
It’s not as exciting as New York City,
but I REALLY hope that Alie is happy here.
Thank you for visiting!
