mighty citrus supper teaser

big bash yesterday? oh, pretty much, yes. if a dinner party can be called ‘bash’ (but i guess in my age it does, it’s the decade of the dinner parties, chuckle). 14 amazing guests, one menu, 6 courses, all about the ‘mighty citrus’ – or so it was thought out. though actually, since it isn’t really citrus season (hello, savvy cook, might as well learn something about the availability of produce… maybe?), i had to eventually cave in and reduce my plans to a couple of year-round citrus (limes, oranges, lemons, kumquats…). yeah, not very exotic. therefore i spiced the menu up with a ‘fusion’ theme. mixed mediterranean with a couple asian touches. lots and lots of limes went in my pots.

so, friends, i was taking care of the mess (it was so worth it) half of sunday, and then the other half i spent creating a new one (friend over for tea – so much to share!). i guess life is for creating messes? you’ll be updated soon. until then, i’m wishing you a wonderful week! stay tuned. kisses
