First Feast 2015

Another fulfilling First Feast was enjoyed by 'Dillo friends Saturday night.  There was plenty of wine, conversation, food, music, and the usual zaniness.  Once again, Mark and Eileen were wonderful hosts and we dined in elegance.  
There was a lot of activity in the kitchen as various recipes were prepared sequentially or simultaneously. 
The hors d'oeuvres were satisfying.  There were various cheeses with fancy crackers and homemade bread.  Jennifer made one of  my personal favorites - dates stuffed with goat cheese and pecans. They were especially yummy. I had too many.

If there was a food theme this year I don't really know what it was.  Maybe "comfort food."  Mark created a splendid beef loin that was as good as the finest prime rib I've ever had. This was accompanied by baked cauliflower, Diane's special green beans with shallots and almonds, and Clint brought a turbo-charged quinao dish. Jennifer's classic chocolate cake was served late in the evening with ice cream and coffee.
