I've reconnected with a gal who I knew years ago, when I was married and she single. I'm now single, she's coming for dinner-how does this sound? (We met for drinks recently).
Marcona almonds, mixed olives, sliced sopressatta from my local guy
Creamy gazpacho (new Cooks Illustrated recipe) with chopped shrimp garnished with toast points with a schmear of pesto
crabcakes on field greens, celeri remoulade, crispy potatoes
cold zabaglione over raspberries in a gratin dish, then bruleed.
