Food Friday: Summer Supper



When I think of the perfect summer supper it includes garden veggies, barbecue, and fresh cut flowers. On Sunday, Jimmy and I were invited over for dinner at our friend's house that included all of these summer staples and more. We are always beyond excited go to Ashlie and Grant's because the food is consistently over the top incredible, and this summer supper was no exception. We dined on delicious peach barbecued chicken, fresh garden veggies (radishes with sea salt is my new love), a Cesar radicchio salad with homemade croutons, and French potatoes gratin with Tillamook cheddar. The meal was capped off with vanilla bean fruit cheesecake (and yes, I ate my entire ginormous slice). Warm nights accompanied with great wine, food and conversation make me realize that summer just might be my favorite season.
