a Hostess gift
Don't you think it looks nice with the bluebells?
such a pretty shade
What to serve when a caterer comes to dine....
Buy some "fresh off the boat" crab
cook and clean it then pick it
make crab cakes
serve with ginger mayonnaise
atop a bed of pea shoots
follow with salad
Barefoot Contessa style
from her Parties cookbook
red leaf lettuce
(Mr. HB's recipe)
with fresh homemade fettucini pasta
Greek coconut yogurt
chocolate espresso cookies
(homemade but rock hard the disaster of the evening!)
I should have tested these cookies before serving them
oh well no one is perfect!
Family dinner was a BBQ
new recipe from White Water Cooks
birthday gift from my son and DIL
West coast fare...
served with twice baked and stuffed potatoes
tomato basil balsamic salad
red leaf lettuce balsamic blue cheese salad
(fresh, a repeat of Saturday's salad)
served with the remaining fruit salad and yogurt
Slept like a baby last night after all the hustle and bustle.
I was recognized by a reader at the market yesterday!
Hello to Marsha
who so kindly introduced herself to me.
She'd been shopping in the newly opened J. Crew in Vancouver
she said the space is quite small
and the selection was limited.
I'll bet that they are dipping their polished toes
very carefully into our Canadian market before they go big or go home.
Have a fabulous Monday...
see you tomorrow!
