Decided to have a friend over for lunch--has been ages since I last had someone over for a meal. Since she's vegetarian, I was able to step out of my comfort zone (meat) and not do what so many will do when feeding someone who isn't a carnivore (pasta).
Sweet potato chipotle soup
Bleu cheese streudel with pickled pears
Frisée with balsamic dressing
We were happy. At some point I'll get the photos up on CA
