Holly Spencer did it again! She and Jeremy presented their last supper of the season with another wonderfully delicious meal. I hope they will do this again before next spring, but if not, I'll definitely be there for the next ones. In the meantime, I'm available if they ever want to invite me to their house to eat - or perhaps send me their leftovers. (I found out they read my blog and am shameless.) Everything I had tonight was wonderful.
This is the menu for tonight with an asterisk by what I ordered. What about you?
* Apple Gruyere Soup
Flatbreads with savory eggplant and goat cheese
* Shaved Melon Salad on spinach and arugula with feta and toasted pine nuts in a house-made vinaigrette
Late Summer Panzanella made with red and yellow tomatoes, basil, red onions, and over-sized parmesan croutons
*Bistro Pot Pie
A new twist on an old Southern favorite: Sweet and spicy curry mix with chicken, sweet potatoes, and edamame under a whole-wheat crust. Accompanied by roasted corn on the cob. (Carl, Matt, and I had this.)
Tomato and Balsamic Barbequed Pork Chops
Slow roasted pork in a tangy fresh tomato sauce. Served atop roasted garlic smashed potatoes. (Tina has this and really liked it.)
Butternut Squash Ravioli
Home-made ravioli in a sage brown-butter sauce with cranberries and walnuts. Served with a side of roasted asparagus. (Paige had this and said it was delicious.)
Pumpkin Crisp with pecans and whipped cream
* Profiteroles in a rich chocolate hazelnut sauce, topped with toasted almonds and whipped cream. (These are little creme puffs. I didn't know that.)
