Dinner With the Congressman October 2, 2011
Well, the dishwasher is humming and we’re relaxed, with our feet up after a great evening, serving dinner to Dan Lungren and a group of lovely people, including Larry Garcia and his wife Chris.
The biggest treat was having my dear friend and maestro of entertaining, Moka Davis, in charge of the menu, preparation and clean up. You know exhausting that can be and to have his help was a real life saver.
Here are some shots of the evening and our yummy dinner. (Back on the diet tomorrow!)
We started with a selection of appetizers, including Moka’s “world famous” crustinis.
The photographer (yours truly) forgot to take a photo of the salad greens with a wedge of an onion tart and a sprinkling of goat cheese. Yum!
The Chicken Marbella, baked with green olives and prunes and served over cheesy grits was delicious. The house was filled with an amazing aroma!
Dessert is usually the high point for me and tonight didn’t disappoint! Moka served a dense chocolate mouse, with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, served in his collection of vintage china cups and saucers.
It was a great evening…sort of like having a town hall meeting in our own home. If you are planning any parties during the holidays and need assistance, now’s the time to contact Moka, at 916/747-6273!
