Sue and I were working on the menu and got distracted with — of course — decorating for the celebration.  I just started piling all kinds of candle holders and decorative pieces on the dining room table.  Then we started pulling out all of the plates, serving dishes and linens.  Voila! Before we knew it the “white party” took shape.  Finally, so did our menu.

MENU

STARTERS

White Bean Bruschetta

Shrimp with Mustard Lime Dipping Sauce

Chilled Zucchini Soup

MAIN COURSE

Baby Greens and Watercress with Citrus Vinaigrette

Orzo with Artichoke Pesto and Roasted Corn

Chardonnay Poached Salmon with Mustard Dill Cream

DESSERT

WINE

We decided that it would be fun to host a celebration where everything served was cold or at room temperature.  As Sue will tell you, the less time in the kitchen during a party, the better!  I actually agreed with her and was happy to join in the fun rather than running back and forth prepping food — plus we had a great time cooking together the day before!

 GOOD NIGHT GOOD FRIENDS!  THANKS FOR A GREAT EVENING TOGETHER.
