Dinner with C & T

On Thursday our friends C, T and baby J came over for dinner. SP and I went to the local farmer's market and an Italiam market to get provisions. Dinner was a smorgasboard of summer, including tomatoes and basil from my garden with fresh mozzarella:

We also had more of the beets I roasted last weekend with some fresh goat cheese and arugula:

C & T aren't fans of goat cheese, so I made half the salad without it:

SP thought macaroni salad would be good:

After all the hubbub about Cook's Country recipes I feel guilty for using one of their recipes, but it worked out well. I found this recipe by simply Googling the title.

In keeping with the summer theme we decided to have burgers. We bought some fresh ground beef at the farmer's market:

... which were juicy and flavorful from the grill. We had them on rolls from the Amish bakery, which is also where we got the pumpkin gems for dessert:

It was good to see C, T and baby J. Thanks for a lovely evening!
Pin It!


  1. Everything looks so good, as always. I am particularly in love with your fresh basil, tomato and mozzarella. I can't believe how much I fell in love with that taste trio.

  2. What GREAT spread! I LOVE the beet salad. I'm so doing that!!

  3. Yum! I think I'm going to have to ask you to do a little shopping for me at the Amish bakery before we get together next!

  4. Melissa - Mozzarella, tomato and basil is one of my favorite combinations!
