Good morning everyone! It's been a while since I blogged last, I've been really busy at work recently and haven't found time to blog in the evenings. I was also using all of my creative energy to plan a dinner party for Sarah's birthday. Her birthday was actually on August 6th, but she was in Atlanta then, so we decided to celebrate when she got back to Raleigh! I hosted a dinner party for some of our friends and think everything turned out fabulous! Here's the menu and links to some of the recipes from the night.
Dinner Party Menu:
- Three Cheese Mini Macs (Mac & Cheese Bites)
- Miniature Cheese Soufflés
- Miniature Crab Cakes
- Salad greens with grape tomatoes, julienned carrots, and choice of dressing
- Homemade chicken cordon bleu
- Sun-dried tomato and spinach risotto
- Sautéed asparagus
- Chocolate covered strawberries
The mac and cheese bites were really great, we only made part of the recipe but I wish we had made more of them, yummm. The mushroom and asparagus tarts were also even better than I expected! We had wine and prosecco for drinks. I put a raspberry in each glass of prosecco for garnish and it was so delish! Angela brought the chocolate covered strawberries and some balloons for Sarah. :) Here are some pictures from the night that I took and some I stole from Sarah.
I'll post the main course recipes and instructions for all of the DIY decor items later! Have a great Monday everyone.
