I am so glad to be here at the start of the weekend, so lets get on with the menu!
Salad and Starters:
Cold Curried Orzo, and Cucumber Ribbon salad from the Perfect Pantry.
Chopped Vegetable Salad with Zesty Ranch from everybody likes sandwiches.
Olives, pickles and such, including deviled eggs.
Chicken Marbella from The Silver Palate Cookbook.
Small Pot Roast of Beef, seared on the grill, and oven finished. Update: they had wonderful Pork roasts at the market, and Honey loves Pork roast gravy. So simply substitute Pork for Beef, and we are on track!
Mashed potatoes with kale, carrots and roasted red pepper. We cannot get enough of these potatoes and they are a must with that roast.
Sauted summer squash.
Rigatoni with roasted red pepper and crumbs from the Noble Pig.
Platter of sliced tomatoes with homemade pesto drizzle.
Birthday cake, of the chocolate variety.
Rhubarb and Berry pie, from Simply Recipes.
Raisin Cookies with mocha glaze. I loved these cookies and have been wanting to make them again. When I served them I thought at the time, a mocha glaze would be wonderful.
It is time for a shopping list, a second cup of coffee and the map to this location. As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop by.
