A Sensual Sunday (on Saturday)

December 5, 2011

I think Saturday was the culmination of my hosting for the year. What’s been a fall season spotted with tiny dinners all came together on for a Sensual Sunday feast (on Saturday) to top all the feasts that came before it. To top it seems like an impossible mountain to climb.

I’ve been having a bit of a hard time eloquently describing Saturday because it really was perfection. I’ve made such great new friends this year and grown old relationships into something truly wonderful. To have all of that in one place, on top of the delicious food everyone contributed was truly a magical thing. If my sad self, new to New York, knew that things would turn out this way, things may have been a bit happier.

And moving on from that, I need to tell you about the food! M kept saying that we needed to chronicle it and she is completely right! Everything meshed together so perfectly. It wouldn’t have worked any more perfectly if one person had been planning the entire meal.


Mini Tartlets w/ mushrooms and feta cheese
Baked Brie with Mushrooms and Thyme

Roasted Goose – Thanks C!

Wild Rice with quinoa and cranberries

That’s right people; I have the best friends ever. I’ll be following up this week with my red velvet recipe and the marinated butternut squash, which I just got out of my new favorite cookbook.

Happy Monday!
