“memorial day weekend dinner party”

How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!  ~Maya Angelou

The city on a holiday weekend is one of my favorite places…the traffic quietens, lots of folks have left town and a general hush falls over everything. We were invited to our good friends, John & Liz,  for a Sunday evening Memorial Day Weekend Lobster dinner party with a couple of other friends. Our hosts provided a great Cheese Platter, the Lobster, roasted asparagus, an unbelievable chocolate dessert & the wonderful ambience. We, the guests, brought a fresh garden salad, a bulghur & vegetable salad, hummus & pita, a fresh baguette, wine & Pimm’s No. 1.

We had lots of laughs and a memorable dinner.

Cheese & Wine for starters.

Jill's Hummus made from dried, cooked & blended chickpeas & tahini..the best.

Sandy's Pennywise Cab...

It's a Pimm's kind of summer!
Liz's fresh asparagus ready to be roasted!
Beautiful simple elegant centerpiece.
Warm fresh baguette....time to dine.
Homegrown & organic, Red & Green Romaine, Red & Green Oak Leaf Lettuces, Spinach, Buffalo Mozzarella & Heirloom Cherry Tomato Salad.
8 minute Lobster Tails...perfect!
Asparagus roasted with Parmesan...
Bulghur with Vegetables...another hit from Jill!
Dinner parties are naturally romantic and cozy.....
...and there was drawn butter...
...eating with our hands....
Liz made the dark chocolate crunchy crust with sea salt for this dreamy tart. Local dairy full fat whipping cream by John on top!

“Life is short…have dinner parties.”

  1. Did you see my Pimm’s cup on Facebook? Yours looks more beautiful, but mine was by the pitcherful. This looks like a fun dinner party! I couldn’t find Jill’s blog.
