On Thursday, I was in the mood to cook. Without taking into account my Saturday plans, I invited 3 couples over for dinner. Saturday arrived and I had two appointments and wasn't able to start prepping until 5 p.m. Cocktails were at 6:30 p.m.
Bruschettas x 2 -- one with roasted cherry tomatoes, the other with wilted fennel, black olives & sardines (served with prosecco!)
Silly Simple Salad with mixed greens, watercress, arugula, ferny bits of fennel and a lemony dressing
Roasted Salmon with Tarragon, Mustard and Chive Sauce (served with Niagara white and red)
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
P.S. I must mention that my friend Suzanne was responsible for dessert. I don't bake. But she does. Suzanne made the MOST outstanding pecan cinnamon buns!
Instant Pot Brown Rice Bowl with Chickpeas - The first thing I made in my new Instant Pot was beans and rice. Not a surprise to anyone who has been a longtime reader here ;) The beans were chickpea...
