A Midsummer Night’s Feast
A huge thank you to our friends Kris (who works with my husband John, above) & Harry (who owns Cheek to Cheek Dance Studio) for preparing another stunning dinner for John and me. Two summers ago they blew us away with a multi-course, perfectly wine-paired feast from their garden’s bounty.
They indulged us again this year. Yes! (Those are tomatillos ripening on the vine.)
Have I mentioned how much I love this time of year?
A mid-course walk along lovely Rice Creek.
Big plans to take notes. As usual…I got nothin’. I talk, I eat, I drink, I talk. That’s about it. Sigh…
The lovely menu below – light, fresh, bursting with flavor. Beautiful wines to set it all off. Pure summer!
