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.
