February Book Club Luncheon

Today I hosted our monthly Book Club Lunch. Even though Valentine's Day has past, I kept the theme, as we read a love story for February: "The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks.
My table was set with gold and silver, with red Valentine touches. Each guest got a "party favor" of a pink Murano glass heart pendant.

We started our "meeting" with prosecco and an appetizer of cherry brie with sour cherry preserves on crackers. We discussed "The Wedding", and decided on next month's book of "Beach Music" by Pat Conroy.

Time to eat and visit! I tried a new recipe from Slow Talk's food board. Dana posted this Asparagas-Gruyere Tart a while back. It turned out to be a delicious crust, and an attractive meatless entree! I also got to use my "new" pizza pan that I bought at the market in Acqui Terme!

Along with the tart, we had Mango-Shrimp Salad, assorted breads, and a green salad with pears, pecans, gorgonzola and dried cranberries.

For dessert, I made individual tiny almond-Amaretto cake bites, mini lemon curd cheesecakes, and served frozen strawberries stuffed with vanilla ice cream and strawberry truffles.

We had a lovely afternoon, and here are more pictures of food and people!
