Dinner Partay

I wish I had photographic documentation of the dinner party I threw last night, but sadly I have yet to replace my broken camera. Shawn and I had a few friends over and ate on the rooftop of our six-story building, which boasts a lovely view of the mountains, downtown Denver, and our awesome neighborhood (Capitol Hill, represent!)

The menu:

Pesto and artichoke stuffed portobellos
Crusty garlic bread with sun-dried tomato pate
Caesar salad (courtesy of my pal and dinner guest, Abbie)
Eggplant rollatini
Tiramisu cupcakes

Candles were lit, wine was imbibed, and bellies were filled. Since I can't show you any pictures from the night, I can at least show you the adorable apron that my husband bought me for the occasion:

I may have been slaving for hours in the kitchen, but at least I looked damn cute while doing it.

And now I'm off to enjoy a lazy Saturday, reading and watching episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with my dude. I hope my lovely readers (all four of you, and yes that includes you, Mom) are enjoying the remainder of summer and eating delicious, cruelty-free food with good company.
