Mediterranean feast for a Girls Night-In

Saturday, June 29, 2013


Just a flying visit to post a few photos of the Mediterranean feast I prepared for the Girls Night-In I hosted yesterday as an early birthday celebration.

Most of the recipes were new ones for me and taken from my new cookbook, BBC Good Food 101 Mediterranean Dishes (a birthday present, from me to me , with love emoticon )

It was not a Paleo buffet at all and the desserts were downright naughty. As we have left-overs, I'm afraid the Paleo challenge is on hold for the remainder of this weekend (however, my digestive system is already complaining!)

I had a great time preparing this feast. I love having friends around and a table groaning under the weight of food emoticon

We had: Crudites with herb aioli, home-made hummus with pitta crisps, pesto pasta salad (with home-made pesto), pesto feta bites, olives, strawberry salad with white chocolate mousse and vanilla cupcake with buttercream icing.

There was alcohol (quite a lot) and I've been feeling a little fragile today so I took it easy.

My son and I are going for a meal tomorrow to celebrate my birthday and then, off to the cinema to watch "Man of Steel" - my son's choice but Henry Cavill on a big screen as a birthday present is fine by me! emoticon

Hope you are all having a fab weekend! emoticon
