Today I am throwing a little garden party and so far it seems like the weather will cooperate! I cunningly planned it for the same weekend as my friend's birthday knowing well the weather deities frequently smile down on her.
Hopefully we'll all be able to loll around in the garden enjoying both the food and the falls. Barring disasters here is the menu, which may be a sneak preview for some of you. My goal was to try to incorporate a lot of produce from the garden right now.
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Vanilla or Orange Currant Scones with clotted cream and jam
Thumbprints with a ganache-like chocolate filling
Flourless chocolate cupcakes with mint cream
Beverages are weather dependent...
We'll see how it turns out. It's fun to be cooking for a party again.
