Follow the Diva to our website and create your own warm weather celebration!
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.
White Bean Bruschetta
Shrimp with Mustard Lime Dipping Sauce
Chilled Zucchini Soup
Baby Greens and Watercress with Citrus Vinaigrette
Orzo with Artichoke Pesto and Roasted Corn
Chardonnay Poached Salmon with Mustard Dill Cream
Blueberry Tart with Homemade Peach Ice Cream
Promesses de France Cotes du Rhone 2012
Aviary Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012
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!
DINNER IS SERVED
GOOD NIGHT GOOD FRIENDS! THANKS FOR A GREAT EVENING TOGETHER.
