Happy Monday! To remind, you can leave comments or questions on this thread. Scroll to the bottom to see where. If you’re new here, welcome! Many of you like when I share details of entertaining at home. Let me come right out and say it - I don’t do complicated. I invite my friends over to spend time with them and enjoy myself. And I also want to cultivate a relaxed energy in my home so my friends have fun too. Your guests won’t have a good time if you’re stressed out and working too hard. So, I invite people over with nothing to prove and I commit to a menu that feels right for how much work I want to expend. I really like this menu I made over the weekend for 8 guests. I had a group of mixed eaters, ie not everyone eats everything. Keeping that in mind, you’ll understand the menu.
I was inspired by your whipped goat cheese appetizer to make a whipped goat cheese with honey app for Rosh Hashanah dinner tonight. Looking forward to your recipe with the almonds etc. Also, I really liked your idea of keeping the same menu when entertaining different groups of friends - genius! First time posting but enthusiastic reader of your emails - thank you
Love your entertaining details, Pamela: food, serve ware and tablescape info ! Thank you for posting!
This meal looks so delicious. Cannot wait to try the flank steak and the other stuff. So enough about the food-I love your dress. Where is it from? Can never have to many LBD's. Thanks.
