If you want to throw a good party, just think of the best dinner you had out. What were the elements? What did you like? How was it set up? What did you talk about?
Here some snap shots of a small family dinner hosted by a guests from a world away.
Salumi and Cheese
Awesome butternut squash soup-my favorite
Linguine with clams, mussels and shrimp-if only I was a serious mussel and clam eater
Slushies (old school method as well)
