Four Seasons Residences Denver Team Dinner

The residence association board that I am on and the residence’s concierge team got together at our home in Denver for a little brainstorming session.  What better way to get those creative juices flowing than a family style dinner together?

You know what really gets the creative juices flowing?  Sparkling Wine!!! We started with hors d’oeuvres and my favorite sparkler, Scharffenberger Brut Excellence.

One of my colleagues on the board (who’s usually good for a laugh) commented:  “I’ve never seen so much green on a plate before.”  HA!! He was right.  I usually think about things like that when I plan a meal.  Green or not, it tasted pretty good.

I found one of my favorite wines, Famille Perrin L’Oustalet Organic Blend, in a store locally and served that with dinner.  To finish the meal we had lemon ricotta pound cake with strawberries.  Darn!  I forgot to take a picture and for once my dessert came out perfectly!  I have to do it again just so I can post what it looks like.
