First Dinner Party of the Season

Wednesday we had a mid-summer’s week dinner with friends and family.  This flower pot of cherries disappeared at light speed:


We also enjoyed short ribs braised all day, a traditional caprese salad, a delicious salad brought by a guest which had romaine, dates, almonds and feta, as well as figs wrapped in prosciutto, drizzled with balsamic and roasted until slightly crispy.  yummmmmmie.

The highlights of the evening:  I ate tomatoes with absolutely no allergic reaction AND 4 young ladies performed a fashion show demonstrating the true glamour of pop beads.  Dazzling all around.
