Dining on the Rocks

Home baked bread and the lucky cat

There is a blog devoted to what we like to call Dining On the Rocks, but I thought I’d post a few pictures from the dinner we hosted last night since, really, it qualifies as an adventure in Five Islands. Plus, the blogger for DOTR is sometimes a little slow to post his reports. But I won’t steal his thunder by giving you the blow-by-blow.

Anyway, we hosted 6 neighbors last night. We served homemade bread (see above), chilled pea soup with garlic cream and crumbled bacon as the garnish, butifarra (Spanish white sausage homemade by Patrick at Three Little Pigs Family Farm) with yellow eye beans from Maine and baby greens from our garden, homemade tagliatelle with lobster cream sauce, and blueberry cobbler.

I was particularly proud of the blueberry cobbler, which I made. But I didn’t get to snap a picture in the rush to serve it to our guests while it was still warm.

Anyway, our guests gave us very positive feedback on this second DOTR event. So we’ll look forward to doing another one some time soon.
