Dinner with Friends

Yesterday I spent the day baking and prepping food for dinner, which included chopping up a variety of citrus fruits that I would be using in a salad.


Some good friends came over for dinner and a visit. 

We started with prosciutto wrapped bread sticks (some with a fig dip and others with cranberry Boursin cheese) and jalapeno poppers because I was totally craving them :-)


Next was a citrus salad with feta and mint.


The 3rd course was fire-pot soup. This was spicy, but not too spicy, with a delicious curry coconut milk broth.


The main course was citrus crusted tilapia, lemon risotto, beets with carrots, and asparagus.


Dessert included lemon crinkle cookies, and a dense, very moist, red wine chocolate cake.

 

How was your weekend?
When was the last time you had dinner with friends?

Oh man, isn't it awesome how citrus fruits are all abundant and cheap right now? Honestly, I know everyone's all into summertime produce, but I think winter brings out the best - citrus, sweet potatoes and winter squash, kale... Everything else at your party looks good too, especially the beets!

Oh my goodness -- I'd love to go to your house for dinner! ;-) Everything looks great. My weekend was pretty standard, but good. Some house cleaning, a little shopping and some yummy food at our favorite Mexican restaurant.

I am totally book-marking that citrus salad with feta! Looks like the perfect combination of sweet 'n' salty.
