Seven Blessings to you all, dear friends.
If you know me, you know I LOVE cooking a themed dinner party. And you KNOW that I ADORE Game of Thrones. If you don’t know that…
Expect a lot of those coming up.
Anyhoozle. Six of our closest friends came over for the weekend and we cruised some Autumnal standards: Farmer’s Market, apple orchard, wine tasting, etc. Look how much fun I had with goats!
And later, while my friends played a very complicated Game of Thrones board game, I was cooking away in the kitchen.
Let’s start with appetizers:
Next, let’s take a look at our cocktail. I found this recipe while adventuring through the magical land of Pinterest. The drink is called The Lioness, and is an homage to the baddest lady in Westeros.
These cocktails went over VERY well. We used Woodford Reserve for the bourbon, and a WONDERFUL red called Chime. It’s a cheap red, in the $12-$15 range. Go get this wine NOW and let it be your jam.
Now, my friends, on to the main course.
I made roasted pork tenderloin, wrapped in prosciutto, with an herb-tastic rub underneath. I made an apple chutney to go with it. It was crispy and tender and a crowd favorite. And very aptly named.
Other dinner notables:
A delicious roasted grape salad a la Highgarden:
Now, the worst thing about this, is that there wasn’t a single decent picture taken of any of the cupcakes!!
So I will definitely have to make some more this week, and post about them. But the savory dishes from the party were definitely noteworthy and photogenic, so there you are.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I definitely enjoyed remembering our Dinner Party!
