FND: October 2010

I just had a great idea: instead of trying -- then failing -- to blog every Friday Night Dinner, I'm going to do a monthly recap. I'll post the menus and guests and the photos that are worthy. And if I don't get everything right -- heck, if I get nothing right -- I'm OK with it.

So, here's October's proof that FND happened three and one-half times:

October 1 - Chick, Pauline, Steve and Gretchen for grilled shrimp apps with lupino beans, and outside for cod over lima beans, potatoes and asparagus. Gretchen provided Little Miss Cupcakes for dessert.

October 8 - Chick, Pauline, Sharon for grilled shrimp and humus nachos then outside for Eddie's famous pallella

October 15 - low key with Chick and Pauline for pork tenderloin over raviolli in a cream sauce.

October 23 we hosted the Oenophiles Fall Wine Dinner at Sunflower Cafe, so FND for 10/22 was cancelled per tradition. The food was difficult to photograph, but here's a shot of the scallop with baby watercress.
October 29 we had Chick, Diana an Jim over for pre- and post-Halloween party parties. Not an official FND,  but Eddie made guacamole, spinach and mushroom quesadillas and beef tacos. Uh, no post-worthy photos.

That was quick and painless! I think I might be able to do this. So look for some posts of previous months for awhile to catch up.
