Dinner with the Hs

My dear friend, Catherine, got married a couple weeks ago. In honor of her nuptials, I made her an apron of the finest cotton (haha!)....well, the cutest darned apron this side of the Mississippi anyway! :-)

The other evening we broke in her new kitchen making a scrumptious dinner of chicken and potatoes on the fly for the boys. Donning our adorable aprons, we threw together a one-dish supper of chicken breasts, fingerling, purple and red potatoes (red, white and patriotic!), and carrots, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt, pepper, thyme and oregano.

Her awesome hubby was responsible for a fantastic salad, complete with fine carrot shavings in their new, dark wooden bowl. He had to try on the apron too...doubles as a 'manpron'. :-p

They uncorked and shared with us a bottle of rose wine from a winery in Napa made with strawberries. Guess I could have died and gone to heaven!!
the newlyweds :o)
Catherine's favorite shots: taken with mouths full of food...surely to assure the viewer that the food was being enjoyed...or is that a grimace I see on your face, Matt??

We spent the evening stuffing ourselves silly (too bad I forgot to take photos of the enormous bowls of cookies 'n cream and mint chocolate chip ice cream we had for dessert...oh, and don't forget the 3 oreos each!) and laughing until our faces hurt. No better way to spend an evening than in the company of good friends and good food... :-)

LOL, manpron! Looks like a great time!

Matt looked pretty schnazy...din-din was delicious that night and the company was almost half as good, too. Okay, I take that back, the company is always good, but the food that night was especially tasty!
