All Grown Up Dinner Party Special

a_tableHas it been a while since you invited people over for a dinner party? Not dinner but a dinner party, the kind with real dishes around the table … not paper plates out on deck. Fall, even early fall or almost fall, means it’s time to invite people over for not just a delicious meal but one that is eaten at the table, not sprawled in a beach chair. (Don’t worry we will all miss the sprawling in beach chairs within a few months.)

Hmmm, what to serve? Here are a few ideas:

If you and your friends like cheese, you can’t miss with my Warm Gorgonzola with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts to start. Or try my Sweet Potato & Goat Cheese Crostini.

When you are ready to move to the table, sit down to a nice salad. Give my Crunchy Salad with Apples & Grapes or Romaine with Grilled Corn, Tomato & Avocado.

For the main course, how about some wonderful Grilled Lamb. (Enjoy cocktails and your cheesy appetizer outside. Let the lamb grill while you sip and enjoy the setting sun.) While you are at it, grill up some Red Potatoes and my Ratatouille Stacks or Balsamic Vegetables.

A fabulous dessert will end your party on a high note. How about Fresh Berries with Creamy Lime Custard? If you can’t get enough chocolate these days, then you must give my Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tart a go.

Have a great weekend, stay dry and bon appétit!

What are your favorite dinner party dishes? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.

  1. Just had a dinner party – sit down – real napkins – silver etc – grilled salmon at room temp – white bean salad – red and yellow tomatoes sliced in vinaigrette with meringues with rhubarb cream and rhubarb sauce – got lots of praise for it
