Good Morning Darlings!
This past weekend was my birthday and there were no shortages of celebrations. Friday night was The Cafe at The Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, Sunday night was pizza and beer on the porch, but Saturday was most special. My sweet bestie, John, cooked a fabulous meal for 12 of us – at my house, so I never had to leave. The party just came to me. Yay!
John decided on a La Dolce Vita theme, with all Italian cuisine. It was divine. The planning started weeks in advance, with John allowing me final say on the menu. I felt so pampered. The menu was as follows:
Savory Caramelized Onion Cheese Cake with Apricot Glaze
Pan Seared Polenta with
Pesto Insalata with Three Cheese Tortillini
Lasagne with Baby Spinach and Portobello Mushrooms
Chocolate Raspberry Panna Cotta
