Last night, we were invited to a small dinner party hosted by some new friends. It was wonderful to share a meal (they made a gorgeous Moroccan-seasoned salmon, mushroom risotto, and mashed sweet potatoes topped with almond crumble) over drinks and good conversation. They're both working musicians and it was inspiring to witness the passion they have for their profession. David and I (who are not musical people) learned a great deal about their work and we're excited to see them perform soon.
For dessert, David made a cayenne pepper seasoned bacon covered in dark chocolate and sea salt. We ate it with vanilla ice cream and it was absolutely splendid! In fact, I think we may have to incorporate the dessert into the menu for our wedding party... chocolate covered bacon in lieu of wedding cake? Yes, please!
