On December 16, we had friends, Louise and Dave to dinner. Louise is an MFT intern I supervise. She is a pre-licensed therapist for Family Services for the Agua Caliente tribe of Native Americans. We meet weekly for two enjoyable hours, and discuss her clients (as well as a few minutes about office personalities, shopping, and our lives!) This dinner was the first time we met each other's husbands.
We started with lively conversation, prosecco/pomegranite spritzers, and brie with fig jam and almonds.
The table was set with jeweled fruit and the Lenox Holiday dishes.
Everyone loved the jeweled nametags and new stocking silver holders!
The primmi piatti: Crab lasagna with guryere cheese and bechamel.
The next course was a salad of baby greens, red pears, blue cheese, candied pecans, and cranberries with a pear-gorgonzola vinigarette.
The entree was veal saltimbocca and grilled asparagas.
We returned to the great room for coffee and dessert: Cream cheese pie with raspberry sauce.
It was a delightful evening, great company, and an easy dinner menu!
