dinner party.Beginning with Stella and scallops wrapped in bacon and ending with board games and Guinness, Leah and Tray hosted a delicious evening, it was a perfect way to wind down from a long work week.
There was so much good food! The springy scallops which had been marinated in mustard and maple syrup and coiled with smokey bacon to begin the evening were fantastic. A salad of lightly dressed greens in balsamic and olive oil was the perfect transition course, featuring crasins, almonds, avocado and tomato. For the main course we feasted on a juicy herb encrusted roast pork loin in mushroom gravy with baked red russet potatoes and baby carrots. We drank a firm, fruit forward red wine with dinner, a bottle of Carchelo C from Jumilla, Spain. After a few rounds of Cranium and Apples to Apples, we dug into a box of Modern Pastries including cannolis, creme brulee and tiramisu. We played Guesstures well into the evening, it's a hilarious game, especially when lots of wine and beer are involved.
