Dinner Party!

 Alex and I decided to host a small dinner party!
 It's a good excuse to use our nice china
 Made the centerpiece all from flowers in my garden

 Hollowed out lemons for lemon mint granita
 Here's the granita.  Super refreshing!
 Here they are plated and looking pretty
 These were intended as a between-courses palate cleanser
 Salt and pepper straws made by yours truly
 Pear, arugula, and ham salad with toasted pine nuts
 The chef
 The menu!
 Itty bitty, mini biscuits for mascarpone pepper jelly and ham biscuits
 Table is set!

 Mascarpone pepper jelly and ham biscuits
 I think these were a real hit
 Sweet corn soup with basil oil and fresh ricotta
 Rosti potatoes with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and creme fraiche
 Triple chocolate mousse cake
Had fun with a little garnish on top.  Also had two other desserts not pictured; Biscoff truffles and salted caramel shortbread.
