we love dinner parties. love love love 'em. these days they are a rare occurrence with our toddler toting about. but we're hosting one tonight. and, with the summer crops in their peak, we find it a good opportunity to utilize our garden's bounty.
first, here's our table.
colorful, huh? a tad bit overwhelming, which i like.
but here's conroy carrying it down stairs. you can't tell, but it's stuck. he could take his hand off the table and it would stay put. he spent more time contemplating and less time putting some elbow grease into it.
and here's our menu.
steamed (toyha) edamame drizzled with tamari sauce
corn on the cob
delicata squash, mashed with some cinnamon and butter
this tomato & cucumber salad recipe (w/o parsley)
sage rice (not wise, but flavored)
baked chicken marinated in garlic, wine and balsamic dressing.
and vino, of course!
