another Saturday night

the sun finally shone for the first time this summer, and provided a pretty nice backdrop for a little dinner party.

Rolf's girlfriend brought a cake in this box.

I made grilled salmon, cold avocado soup, quinoa with sweet potatoes, green, red and mango salsa, and mild green chilies stuffed with goat cheese mashed potatoes 

the cold avocado soup at sunset.

potato stuffed peppers!

some people showed up on time, and some came a bit later.

berries with rum laced whipped cream and Swiss meringues

and a tiny predinner Maitai

pineapple upsidedown cake is good


  1. Pineapple upside down cake with real cherries vs. embalmed ones; discuss. (SPOILER ALERT: my prejudices are clear from the adjectives used in the question.)

    Also: I am totally coming around to yours on Saturday more often. This weekend I was in the woods dining on packaged Indian food ... which wasn't bad, for camping food, but still.
