Not too long ago, I had my friend Renae over for dinner. I am glad that we were able to spend time together and I always enjoy cooking for other people.
Note: The daffodils are from my friend Carol’s garden.
Romaine Salad – romaine with raw broccoli and carrot
Maple Vinaigrette – Olive oil, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup whisked together (I did not measure).
Strawberries with Dark Chocolate – I melted Endangered Species Chocolate, Strong + Velvety Dark Chocolate 88% Cocoa and made round disks.
My critique of the meal: It was good for an easy meal but I am more satisfied when I make a bigger effort. I would not make this eggplant recipe again since I like other recipes better but Renae liked it. I enjoyed the chocolate better in this form than from the chocolate bar.
