In Like a Lion

Again, no pictures of the guests. I’m embarrassed to snap photos during dinner! It’s like, “Put your fork down, I’m going to put this on my blog.” I suppose I’ll get the hang of it eventually. Here is the menu for my “In Like a Lion” vegetarian feast, in honor of Jesse and Alice, spring, and a craving for champagne cocktails…




marcona almonds with rosemary, mixed olives, grapes
assorted cheese: gruyere, cheddar, piave, humboldt fog
