Dinner Guests

We spent most of yesterday morning cooking and prepping, because last night Mel and Steve came over for dinner

They came bearing pretty flowers:

We started with some appetizers, including cheese/meat/crackers, Korean rice pockets, and homemade shrimp fresh rolls.

Easy Peanut Sauce for Fresh Rolls

1/4 cup hoisin 
2 T peanut butter
1 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp sesame oil

Mix.  Enjoy.

Next we enjoyed a warm lobster salad:

You can find the recipe here.

The third course was clam chowder soup:


For the main course we ate creamy parmesan fusilli:

Bread with oil and vinegar on the side ...

Christopher got to try out his baking skills ... he made sopapilla cheesecake pie, and it turned out perfectly.

We also had chocolate & vanilla bean, pear crumble.

I love these people! 

We had a fun, late night with plenty of laughs.

How was your weekend?  What did you do?

Yum, that meal looks delicious! I am sure your guests loved it! I had a pretty quiet weekend. I spectated at the Charlotte marathon on Saturday morning, but that was about it for social interactions for me. I spent Sat night and Sun night in the kitchen, though, so that was good.
