Dinner With Friends

Again, as I have been Debbie Downer lately, I am trying to do what I can to get out of my slump. In celebration of my house being clean I decided to invited some friends over for a tasty dinner tonight.

On the menu:
Olives from Mercato
Olive bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar
Baked brie with pecan caramel glaze and crackers

Grilled rib-eye steak marinated in rosemary, peppercorns and balsamic vinegar
Spaghetti alfredo
Tomato bocconcini salad

Chocolate-cherry cake (supplied by the lovely Alena)

We also tasted many delightful wines, including the Peter Bruce Sauvignon Blanc I was given by the vinter himself! Everything was fantastic, especially the laughs.

My guests: Eric, Elaine, Katie, Kris and Alena

Can anyone tell me what this is? Colourless crystals on the inside of the bottle.

It's "spaghetti"...

Sounds delicious though. I wonder how the Canadians pronounce the word "pecan".

Kate said...

Oopsy! I was quite tipsy when I typed that.

As for the "pecan," it varies person to person, but for most Canadians it rhymes with "we ran."
