Flashback Friday: Dinner Party

Posted by Shannon on 02/24/2012

By the first week of July 2011, I was moved into my new apartment and already in the throes of taste bud heaven. These are three photos from July 7th, when we hosted our first dinner for Steve’s parents and grandma.  The AM started with an omelette, wheat toast and an arugula salad w/ homemade vinaigrette.

Skip ahead many hours, family arrived and we congregated around the table. This colorful, creamy, tangy Caprese appetizer for our dinner party that evening.

We made a pasta dish with chicken meatballs from scratch. The unique recipe strayed from traditional contents…incorporating chicken rather than beef or veal, along with Pecorino Romano, basil and lemon zest. The sauce was also homemade with San Marzano tomatoes. Final plating was a dish with bits of fresh mozzarella and shredded basil fresh from our herb garden on the deck.

My stomach and heart were happy as I looked around the table and saw all dining room chairs filled with friends laughing, eating and enjoying their time together at our place.

Have a great weekend!
