Or at least a lot of it and fun at the house.
Thursday Cocktail Party-Cheese and Crackers, Charcuterie, Nuts, Olives, Champagne, Ginger Peach Sangria
Dinner-Grilled Corn and Avocado Shrimp Salad, Grilled Ratatouille, Garlic and Rosemary Grilled Chicken, Market Fish, Red and White Wine
Dessert-Hazelnut Cake with Mint Chocolate Pudding
Friday Brunch-Apple Coffee Cake, Grilled Fruit Salad, Yogurt, Granola, Frittata du Jour
The frittata was made with leftover fish from dinner, sauteed bell peppers, carrots, and locally grown celery-I mention that it was locally grown because it was much darker and sweeter than the kind you usually find in the grocery store. The fish went over well with all-I assumed some would find it gross but it was the first to go.
Cocktail Party-Hummus, Vegetables Nues, Crackers, Guacamole, and Gummy Bear Sangria
Dinner-Fall Squash Farro Salad, Grilled Ratatouille, Smushed Potatoes, Salmon Kebabs, Grilled Steak du Jour, Red and White Wine
Dessert-S’mores by the fire
Fire in the making!
and keeping Mei warm
Saturday Brunch-Yogurt & Granola, Fruit du Jour, Whipped Ricotta,Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

This water was freezing, but most made the plunge. I realized I left my swimsuit at the apartment in NYC.
And after all the fun, more food :).
Dinner-Grilled Veggie Pizza, Salad du Jour, Linguine with Clams
Dessert-Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches: Red Velvet w/ Cream Cheese Ice cream, Chocolate w/ Plum Ice Cream, and Snickerdoodle w/ Apple Bourbon Ice Cream
