On Monday we had the opportunity to enjoy a little slice of summer with friends for dinner. The atmosphere, company, food and beverages were delightful.
It seems like summer goes by so quickly and we often say we wished we had more time to do things like this, so when we do we always try to enjoy every little bit.
Our host had a festive atmosphere as we arrived and fed us quite well on a menu that included chips, salsa and guacamole for appetizers, along with a carmelized onion and summer squash tart that I baked. Then we had a trio of salads, grilled asparagus, shrimp skewers and steaks. Dessert was some of Gail Ambrosius' decadent chocolates. What a perfect end to a great meal!
