This past Friday, before snowpocalypse 2k9, Greg and I had Kim, Rex, John and Sutton over for our monthly dinner party. After making lamb meatballs and tzatsiki as an appetizer for our christmas cocktail the week prior, I had Greek food on the brain, and devised the following menu:
Chilled and Dilled Avgolemono Soup
Simple Greek Salad
Grilled Lamb Skewers
Orzo with Feta, Tomatoes, and Dill
Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Garlic and Swiss Chard
Semolina and Ground Almond Cake
I was able to use a lot of the items from our final CSA box that Kim and Rex picked up for us last week. Red wine and good conversation flowed, and before we knew it, there was a few inches of snow on the ground.
