If you all don’t know by now, I love food. It’s a good thing that I’m friends with people like Crisa and Alicia who know how to make a good meal! On Tuesday we went to Crisa and TJ’s for a completely summer meal. First of all let me just say I love Crisa and TJ. There house is always so cozy and inviting and they definitely know how to make you feel welcome. When it comes to entertaining, Crisa leaves Martha Stewart in the dust.
Here’s the menu:
- Potato Salad – with french cream, hard boiled eggs, honey mustard, balsamic, and kalamata olives
- Butter Lettuce Salad – with string beans and a homemade ranch dressing
- Mini Hamburgers – with aged (to perfection) cheese on hawaiian rolls and adobe sauce
- Watermelon Mint Julips – fresh seedless watermelon with fresh mint sprigs, bourdon, lime juice, and sugar all mashed and sifted into a perfect summer drink
As the lights dimmed lower, nothing but the glow from the scattered candlelight lit our faces. It was so relaxing. So we moved on to dessert! Crisa had made lemon ice cream cake topped with homemade strawberry ice cream, lemon ice cream, whipped cream, and lemon zest. uh, yum. Oh did I meantion the French Press Coffee?
Your mouth can stop watering now…
