Dinner with Friends

Last night we had our friends Jeff and Alaina over for dinner.  They came out to Christopher's show on Sunday, but before that it had been too long since we had gotten together with them.  We made a meal we've had numerous times before, which is always a good idea when having guests.

We started with some oysters and a few cheeses:

Clam chowder soup was next:

Then the main course:

And chocolate pavlova for dessert:

There are a LOT of leftovers, so the other meals we planned on making this weekend are being pushed back, and we'll be eating up these dishes for the next couple days.

Christopher made Southern eggs benedict this morning with some of the leftover cornbread as a base.  He whipped up a Cajun spiced hollandaise with the yolks that were left from making the pavlova, and poured it over the soft poached eggs.

It's a bit of a blustery day today, so we've been enjoying cozy time on the couch, and might throw on a movie or two this evening. 

What are you up to this weekend?

The meal you made for your guests looks delicious! We haven't had people over for dinner in so long as my RA flares have made it too hard to schedule things as I never know how I am going to feel. I can't wait to get back to hosting people!

We had a fun weekend! Phil and I went out for one last 'date night' on Friday night at a new-to-us restaurant. Our meal was really good. Then on Saturday his HS friends hosted a baby shower brunch for us in the morning. It was SO good. The rest of the weekend was pretty quiet. We got a snow storm on Saturday during the late afternoon/evening. I made a simple baked chicken salsa verde dish that we both love and we watched a movie. And then yesterday my cousin was in town so I met her for brunch. So I had lots of good eats over the weekend!
