I thought that I'd share some pictures of the food. Here's the appetizer/drink table.
Let's take a closer look... This is my contribution, the focaccia bread. I may be shopping for another focaccia recipe. This was a little too chewy. The flavor was good, though.
Some baguette slices with olive oil for dipping.
Oh how I love Caprese Salad!
Pretty pink roses.
I can't believe that I forgot to take pictures of my favorite snack on the table, the Risotto Balls! Boy, were those good!
Before dinner, we toasted.
For the main course, Fettuccine with Roasted Chicken and Lemon Cream Sauce. This recipe was posted on this blog courtesy of our host way back in December of 2008. It's good stuff!
And let's not forget the side dishes, Bruschetta Casserole and ....
a Tuscan Squash Bake.
Here's my plate. Of course, I tried everything (some of it twice!) Here you can actually see one of those risotto balls that I forgot to photograph...it's that thing that looks like a hush puppy on the left side of my plate.
And finally, dessert! My sister-in-law made these cream puffs from scratch! Half were filled with custard and half were filled with a Nutella cream. Mmmmm.
Definitely some good eats! Here's what we'll be eating the rest of this week:
