We had a composed salad with strawberries, some very creamy goat cheese, and some home-made balsamic dressing that Alison Made.
Composed Salad A la'Alison
We followed that up with a perfectly roasted chicken. It was only perfect because I used Tony Bourdain's recipe from the Les Halle cook book.
Tony's Pan Gravy (finished product). Note the veggies. Don't neglect the pyramid!
For dessert, it was a fresh Mango, Peach, Nectarine and Blueberry Cobbler.
So we finished dinner and had the cobbler on the front porch while the kids caught fire flies. Now that's a slice of Americana.
Thanks for reading. My next post, which I hope to finish before I go on vacation this weekend, will be about an un-planned dinner with a good friend of mine, Adolfo Mendez, owner of Cubano's in Silver Spring and Nellie's in the District.
