Friday Food Stories

I still have not figured out the issue with my website causing yesterday’s error, but thankfully, I have a back door into my admin area through my hosting company. I already spent too much time trying to debug it, so I guess I’ll live with it for now.

Anyway, yesterday really was a good day. I try to recognize them when I have them because it’s too easy to focus on the negative. Like the weather right now. What in the world is going on?! I mean, I guess April isn’t historically the most fantastic weather month here in Maryland, but it feels like winter will not let go. I’m so tired of chilly, windy runs.

A November Dinner Party Menu with Wine Pairings

Last Friday, I hosted a small dinner party with two of our closest friends. It was a much-needed date-night-in considering we really can’t get out.

The Menu

  • Cocktail: Candy Apple Whiskey Sour
  • Appetizer: Loaded Sweet Potato Skins
  • Salad: Pear, Maple Pecans, and Arugula Salad with Fig Vinaigrette
  • Main: Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon over Pureed Sweet Potato and Roasted Broccolini
  • Dessert: Ricotta Apple Fritters
