Some info about our Gourmet Group: We are 4 couples who enjoy cooking, entertaining, and most of all, each other’s company.
We take turns hosting in our homes. The hosts decide on the menu (theme) from appetizers to dessert for the evening. The hosts cook most of the meal, but give at least one course (along with all the recipes) to the other couples to prepare. We love trying new recipes and ideas. So most of the time, the recipes are ones we haven’t cooked before, but they don’t have to be.
Another couple hosted our Gourmet Group last weekend. Their theme for the evening was “Spring Fling”.
Here is a glimpse at their colorful Easter/spring tablescape.
Soft pastel colors used as an accent on the table…
Lots of colored eggs and Easter candy to munch on…chocolate!
Photo with the candles lit right before we were going to sit down for our salad course, “Outback Steakhouse Wedge”. As usual for our group, appetizers were served in the kitchen.
I loved the elegant manner they served after dinner drinks…
