sounds good to me. a bonus is that the apartment is clean and well-organized -- the only way i feel like i can really relax into my surroundings at home. we're even starting to add a few touches here and there:
salmon with a side of SNED
i think last night's dinner went well! i did not subject our guests to the wrath of the camera, but i do think that l + m had a good time.
i set this simple cheese plate out to start with, and we sat around nibbling for a while and enjoying some sauvignon blanc.
this kept our guests busy while i headed to the kitchen to finish up with dinner.
the salmon recipe was from the splendid table cookbook, and worked as an easy prep method while guests were waiting [the sauce was just salmon drippings + leftover garlic/basil in the pan + white wine cooked down].
luckily, our guests still had room for some espresso + dessert:
this cake was from SNED and was definitely a hit! it was moist, not too sweet, and sans whipped cream, the whole-wheat based cake would even make a relatively healthy breakfast option. [or, you could really start the day with a bang and keep the topping, of course :) ].
