Guys, I don’t have many friends (wow, now that was a lovely way to start a post) but those who I do call my friends are TRULY the best. I value quality over quantity…and those who cook 🙂 Yesterday husband and I had the privilege of attending a friend’s home for a dinner party with our other friends. The “chef” of the evening is, in fact, a REAL trained chef. Let’s put it like this; we left with satisfied, full bellies and hearts full of laughter. (Wow, that was cheesy but so true). We had an amazing meal with a side of Cards Against Humanity (kinda the funniest thing ever- I completely recommend you playing this game). Oh, and these might’ve happened…
Which might have spawned this…
But anyyyyway, back to the real deal: the meal! So, the chef was up against some challenges. So it was three couples: chef and her husband, me and mine, and C and hers. So C has a few dietary restrictions including no dairy and I cannot believe how Chef delivered! First course: French onion soup..um unreal:
And the non-dairy version:
Second course: an amazing lightly dressed (with a lemony vinaigrette)
Main course: Prime rib – holy cow this chick can cook!
The most amaaaazing squash (I STILL don’t know how she did it) and mushroom truffle risotto (with a non-dairy version).
PS: I totally revisited that squash post run this afternoon. Yup, she even sent me with leftovers!
THEN came dessert! Camera ate that photo (or the jello shots, possibly the wine?) Brownies and Amaretto cookies! Salivating just thinking about it.
SERIOUSLY. Amazing food. Amazing company. Amazing friends.
