Dinner!

I've really been living up to the name of this blog. I haven't cooked ANYTHING since my enchilada extravaganza of Monday night. (Mmmm...that sounds good for dinner. I wonder if my leftovers are still safe to eat...) In fact, I can't recall making or even eating anything at all this week...until last night.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to a friend's house for a little dinner party in honor of a fancy, brand-spanking-new oven! It was super fun and we ate and drank very well. If memory serves, we drank 1 bottle of Grüner Veltiner, 1 bottle of red from Haut Medoc, 1 bottle of red from Priorat, 1 bottle of red from Gigondas...I'm probably forgetting something. (It's all kind of blurring together right now.) We also snacked on olives, Marcona almonds, guacamole, and ham croqeutas before a fabulous shrimp and andouille paella with sauteed dandelion greens on the side. We finished it all off with a tangy lemon tart. I stumbled home without any new recipes, but I did remember to take a few photos. If only they were scratch and sniff...

You blow my mind! This food looks amazing, and you just 'whip it together.' Did your kitty get a sample?
