On Saturday we hosted my in-laws for a fancy dinner to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary this year. All year each of the brothers (there are 4 total) will be hosting them. We were first.
  1. I developed a menu quickly.
  2. First course: pea soup with garlic chips
    Soup was a random blog recipe, garlic chips from Chrissy Teigen's Cravings
  3. 2nd: beet, potato, and lentil salad
    Hello Fresh recipe
  4. 3rd: zucchini noodles with homemade pesto
    I mean I guess I looked up the ratios for pesto
  5. 4th: miso glazed sea bass with kale and carrots
    A riff on a Blue Apron recipe
  6. 5th: crepes! This one with pear butter and cinnamon, others with strawberries and Nutella
    I used a crepe recipe from the blog Closet Cooking
  7. It turned out great! Better than we hoped!
    Now I'm kind of excited to host more dinner parties.
