Dinner Party

Welcome to my dinner party! 
Sit back and relax

Earlier this week I prepared supper for my roommates and a friend. Just a simple meal that's all I wanted. Simple and healthy, something I could feed some friends. To the cookbooks and internet I went. I knew some of the sides I wanted, a green salad with walnuts and blueberries with a raspberry vinaigrette. But what to make for the main entree... I decided upon Chicken with fire roasted tomatoes topped with feta cheese. But what else? I threw in some sweet potatoes ( LOVE THEM) and some MN farm fresh green beans.

I really wanted roasted pears for dessert. But of course pears are out of season. I decided to go with the same idea but with peaches. Oven roasted peaches with a slight drizzle of butter and a bit of brown sugar roasted in the oven topped with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Simple and delicious. The way dessert should be.

Scoop of Hagan Daz ice cream makes everything better 

I am pretty sure I came close to using every bowl, spoon, pot & pan in the house.. erh apartment. But the fun of my first dinner party at my own apartment? Using fun bowls and sets of plates that you don't normally use.
