winter dinner soiree

What better way to spend a January evening than with best friends on the eve of a snowstorm enjoying fine wine and a pot-luck meal. Last night Tracy hosted us at her recently redecorated home thanks in large part to the closing of our boutique, grasshopper. She has quite the gallery installed in her dining room! And it is completed with a winter indoor jungle now that her terrace is closed for the season. We started our meal by enjoying Tracy's totally addictive white wine & cheddar fondue while toasting, catching up and waiting for the roasting stuffed chicken to finish in the oven. Once the bird was carved and plated our meal of endive & blue cheese salad, homemade stuffing and wild rice with mushrooms was ready to eat. Fresh cannoli from Termini Bros. completed this lovely get together.
