Another Day, Yet Another Dinner Party.

Slept in late (10). It felt really good. Luckily the BC Boys aren’t early risers either – but were up before me and had the coffee on. Nice treat.

They also made breakfast (and cleaned up). VERY good houseguests.

Did a little running around in their Tercel (since my wagon is with Mountainé), up to the shop so Hummingbird could buy a bottle of pear cider for the gathering, then a little sightseeing driver through Leshi to see the late, then back Yesler through Pioneer Square, down 1st to Peco’s Pit for a BBQ sandwich lunch, then home for a nap.

Tonight’s dinner party:

  • UncleMarkie
  • Hummingbird
  • Cyndi/BamBam
  • Roxy
  • JC (Hawaiian friend of Roxy)

A heavily fish-centric dinner since Roxy is a pescatarian (vegetarian who eats fish).

  • Pupu platter of summer sausage and cheese (neither of which Roxy could eat, but it’s what I had)
  • Shrimp ceviché gazpacho (recipe below)
  • Fresh bread (came out better than last nights, but still a little lumpy, and with water instead of chicken broth)
  • Big green salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, Brazil nuts
  • Grilled asparagus
  • BBQ’d halibut and salmon

Shrimp Ceviché Gazpacho Recipe

  • ½ pound shrimp ceviché
  • Spicy Bloody Mary mix
  • Vodka

In small ramekins split the ceviché evenly. Serving size determines the number of people this recipe feeds. Add ½ ounce of vodka over the top of each. Top with Bloody Mary mix and stir.

Well, that’s it for today – so far no dinner party guests for tomorrow.
