A few weeks ago, we were lucky to have our friend Lisa join us for dinner with her fiancée, John. Lisa moved to Colorado about 5 years ago and this is the first time we had seen her since she left the beach. The weather was perfect and dinner on the dock was the only way to entertain our landlocked friend.
Evening started with chilled Spanish cava and a toast to Lisa and her new partner.
The contrast between dark blue and sparkling white always makes me happy and I use this combo often. Chef Gar is a stickler for serving food on white dinner plates so I can only get a little crazy with the rest! But he is an awesome cook and I can live with white plates.
One of my favorites, the hydrangea, was blooming nicely and made a simple and delightful center piece.
Just have to love Old Time Pottery and their inexpensive wine glasses!!
Life is good on the bayou! Wrinkled table cloth and all!
I love this little guy. Great for appetizers or all the goodies for pan tomaquita. Chef Gar did a country paella for dinner. So busy talking I forgot to get any pixs of dinner. It was great!
