Tonight K and I are having friends over for dinner – our very first guests since moving one hour out of the city.
Since I’ll be rushing home just in time for their arrival (long commute = no prep time!), I’m planning a simple, fast, healthy and delicious menu that will allow for less time in the kitchen, and far more time laughing around the dining table.
Starter: Grilled Corn Salsa and chips, a la Spoon Fork Bacon

Main Course: Lemon and Thyme Salmon with Green Salad
Dessert: Banana’s Foster (recipe and photos to come luvs!)
Other key ingredients: chilled white wine to welcome guests, fresh coffee and teas for after dinner, and a cute dog to distract your guests while you finish last minute details (table setting, hiding socks under the couch, etc.).
How do you prepare for company dears? xxx
