Look at this feast!
My friends and I gather for a much over-due Dinner Party. That is what we, now adults, do. As guests, we are instructed to bring wine and dessert. As hosts, we scan our brains for how to entice our visitors and how to make them stay. The party favor at this dinner party was Humphrey the cat. Look at him mean mugging.
This time our hosts actually out-did themselves. Five courses! Fig and blue-cheese starters with boar prosciutto, an heirloom tomato bruschetta, a three-tier eggplant,squash and mozzarella magoo (not a real word, i know, don't worry) and we were satiated enough to skip the main raison d'etre; the fish. We went straight for the cannolis (from Arthur Ave, obvi).
