I've been neglecting you, I'm so sorry. I would say that it won't happen again, but that would be a huge lie.
So. Friday night Matt and I went to a late night dinner at Zoe, and Matt discovered a drink called the Green Dragon.
I stayed with one of my favorite drinks: the espresso martini.
Also, the coconut macaroons for two? So good that I didn't even remember to take a picture of them. They are so good that I want to learn how to make them. Even though, for some inexplicable reason, buying shredded coconut makes me feel like white trash. Why does it make me feel like this? I have no idea.
Then yesterday, Matt and I had friends over for dinner. And whenever I have people over for dinner, I spend the entire day cleaning and cooking. Matt and I decided on a Cuban dinner, partly because I love a challenge and I've never made Cuban before, and partly because Yum... Mojitos.
On the menu was a mixed green salad with a homemade champagne vinegar dressing, Pork with a Mojo sauce, a cool and super easy corn salad, and chocolate mousse with creme fraiche and raspberries and blackberries for garnish.
I took a picture of my first step in making the mousse...
And also the dinner table (using my favorite fun leather placemats and gorgeous flowers from my husband), and then I had a mojito and forgot to take any more pictures...
But trust me - it was a fabulous time. If you don't believe me, go and check out JargonScout's (way too complimentary) post about the dinner.
So, internet, what did you do this weekend?
