And Jain's DB's Spring Fling~
We are busy this w/e.. with a celebration.. and work..
I got a jump start.:)
From my most recent favorite cookbook~
Not mine though~
I did not follow the menu at all..I just loved the page~
I started with the idea of my place setting in mind..
Lucky little US dishes:) And beautiful placemats and napkins from Susan for my birthday last month~
The soup bowls are from here.. a friend picked them up for me..I found the price very reasonable..for here:)
Last year..they were at HomeSense..I have 2.
If you look closely enough you can see me and Mary~
We started off with a Ricardo recipe..I LOVE it..I substituted the gelatin for Agar 2(my new addiction)..you have to do it differently but it works beautifully!
It's a Different Panna Cotta.. salad:)That's almost the name of the recipe!... and leek..you spread it on croutons and enjoy the salad apart~
I added chive oil I made and it was super w/ it~
I also made 5 Minute Artisan Bread in my mini Le Creusets..If you do not have that book..Buy it:)
With honey butter..Oh my gosh~
I decided to make the Williams-Sonoma Pea Soup recipe which is DELICIOUS!
and finalized the main course on an Asparagus/Emmental Quiche~ Accompanied by sautéed brussels sprouts with Sesame Oil.. ginger ..garlic.. and soya sauce..
It was a lovely..light dinner..
I did not make dessert because we still have the SCCCcake..and I made muffins and my DD's Oatmeal cookies for the weekend..But IF I had..
I would have picked the Flower pots..w/ chocolate rocks....from Jain..:)
Have a great weekend everyone.
