My husband and I held a wedding shower for two of my work colleagues yesterday. While we were hoping for beautiful weather so we could eat in the back yard, Mother Nature did not comply with our wishes. But this didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. My sweet husband has grilled in far worse weather than a simple rain shower, our home was filled with warm and friendly people, and there was enough food and wine for a small army.
Artisanal bread with an assortment of cheeses (my favorite among them, boursin poivre)
Bacon baked with brown sugar
Asparagus with asiago cheese wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic vinegar
Mushroom ravioli with sundried tomatoes
Grilled chicken breasts with pesto
While I intended to make a spinach quiche, I ran out of time, but no one seemed to feel the lack.
Are you entertaining this summer? What’s on the menu?
