Weekend Houseguests



This weekend my friends Heather (Friday’s guest blogger) and Becci traveled to Greensboro for a short visit. Heather and Becci are the perfect house guests – they are amused with very little effort (no dog and pony shows here),  love to eat and drink and are great late night karaoke singers (another guilty pleasure). One of the best things about owning a home is sharing it with friends. With the best of friends, it feels just like a childhood sleepover – with much more champagne and bourbon. This week, I’ll be posting the recipes we enjoyed this weekend- showing you that entertaining friends is fun doesn’t have to be stressful if you plan ahead. I just hope that your friends are as fun and easy as mine!


  1. We just ate our picnic for a plane in the DTW airport and looked smugly at all the poor saps eating their airport fast-food! We had a lovely weekend with you, so grateful for your hospitality & friendship and so sad to be headed back to work 9 to 5! Thanks!!!!

  2. Back at the ranch (where the temp is currently 53 degrees and dropping!) – here’s that link to the smittenkitchen food photo tips & hints: http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/11/our-approach-to-food-photos/

    Also – I keep hearing about and seeing chimichurri. I had it once (where & when are many margaritas ago of lost brain cells) and it was delicious. A possible late summer cilantro / early fall larger piece of meat endeavor for Mod Meals?
