52 Dinners - Week 21: Good Martinis, Great Friends
A lovely, low-key time
I didn’t serve an hors d'oeuvre. We had dressed greens (literally just lettuce and vinaigrette because I didn’t have a single nut, vegetable, fruit, cheese, or any other salad component in the house; it was fine), and a spatchcocked roasted chicken with potatoes and sauteed fiddleheads.
The food photos aren’t post-worthy because I was distracted by my Wildhart martini and had the camera on the wrong setting.
For dessert we enjoyed leftover dark chocolate pecan cookies from our Saturday farmers’ market, which I served atop one of my favorite Jeremy pedestals.
Bailey adorned the table with a wall of daffodils. I found these pink napkins in the bottom of my napkin drawer, which matched perfectly with the centers of those littlest daffs.
I used antique green metal napkin rings (for which I paid $.10 each at a thrift store) to make fanciful napkin bow ties (talk about “dressing up” a table!).
I asked Bailey, “Are these silly or wonderful?”
He replied “Yes.”
