Because my Saturday night plans were cancelled, Z and I decided to invite some friends over and make an Italian feast. To make our dinner in even more economical, we had each of our friends bring something for the meal. Two of our friends brought some great cheeses (goat, Manchego and Brie) with crackers and white wine, and another brought homemade crepes with fresh peaches, hot fudge and a bottle of red wine for dessert. Z and I took care of the main course: sliced bread with homemade dipping oil and whole wheat fusilli with homemade cilantro pesto and chopped grape tomatoes.
The end result was a simple, cozy, relaxing dinner shared amongst friends in the comfort of Z’s home. It was the perfect way to spend a hurricane-ridden Saturday night!
