Recently… A Dinner Party

On Sunday, I had a couple of friends over for a little dinner party! In the spirit of trying new things with my blog, here’s a little instagraphic of the meal–the main course of which did not make it onto Instagram since we were so excited about diving in!

A dinner party

I made Joy the Baker’s tomato cobbler with blue cheese biscuits. It was so good! Heirloom cherry tomatoes, caramelized onions, and basil, with fluffy, baked with tangy buttermilk biscuits on top. Super easy–the hardest part was the onions!–and great for a little get together. On the side, I just put together a simple spinach and fresh herb salad with this shallot-dijon vinaigrette. The perfect end of summer meal. (Can you believe it’s September!?)

And then, even though I had made browned butter cupcakes the day before, I wanted something lighter, so I made another cake–just a simple vanilla guy–with fresh vanilla bean whipped cream and raspberries.

Plus, my friends brought the prettiest sunflowers! (Which, miraculously, lived untouched and thriving for a full two days on my table before one of the cats started chewing on them!)

PS: I also got my haircut last weekend if you’d like to further neb into my life!
