So we celebrated the first Sunday following the first full moon following the vernal equinox with a small feast which, being us, quickly got out of hand, and involved us raiding the Pike Place Market yesterday morning, along with massive amounts of last-minute assemblage this morning to make it all work. Here's the menu:

Salmon with Green Sauce
Roasted Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto
Fresh Mozzarella, Tomatoes, and Basil drizzled with a balsamic reduction
Pesto with Snow Peas
Rye Bread
Rosemary Garlic Bread

And for desert:

Buttemilk Panna Cotta with Strawberries
Strawberry Short Cake

And to drink - Champagne, mimosas, OJ, tea, and as a desert wine a macademia honey wine brought by Monkey King and Shelly.

Guests included Bill, Mi'ko, Steve Miller (no, not the singer, the other one), the aforementioned King and Shelly and Heidi. A good time was had by all, but we once again cooked way too much, and have spend the afternoon just sort of laying around. Meanwhile, the weather has turned weird outside, with bands of hard rain followed by beautiful blue sky - the Lovely Bride and considered a walk, but by the time we got around to it, it was raining cats and dogs.

But I Digest (heh).

More later,
