The Lovely Jess was kind enough to be hostess for this month's Sunday Cafe, and she did a splendid job. Having had a bit of the "tireds" here lately, she thought it would be nice if I didn't have to cook and yet we still all got together.
Here is a run down of our lovely dinner:
Thai salad with spicy dressing, this is so good and will be made again. Thanks to Kimi Harris @ the Nourishing Gourmet for her review of:Cuisine for Whole Health: Recipes for a Sustainable Life by Pauli Halstead.
This sad serving plate had a Pork Loin marinated in molasses, ginger and chicken broth. Then grilled and served with grilled chicken tenderloins, for those that might now want pork as their protein.
Barley risotto, this was so good. I will be making this myself. Barley is one of my favorite grains.
We also had steamed broccoli, and since everyone knows what steamed broccoli looks like, I did not take a photo. You will have to use your imagination to see the deep green color and the cook to perfection slightly crisp texture present in the broccoli!
Homemade cheese bread, feathery light and delicious.
Strawberry shortcake using berries from last summer and a homemade shortcake that was sweetened by vanilla sugar. Yum.
As always thanks so much for stopping to say hello, I appreciate it!
