Weekend Feasting Plans

Happy Friday! I am so excited for this weekend. I have loads of food and cocktail plans and will report back with pictures next week.

I’ll be attempting a Deconstructed Eggplant Parmesan. I’ve never been able to cook eggplant well – it always turns out bitter and mushy – but this LA Times articles sounds fool proof.

I'm meeting my friends for a girls’ brunch at Shade Hotel to celebrate Amanda's birthday. I’m looking forward to a cappuccino, possibly some eggs benedict, and lots of catching up.

We'll be celebrating Josh’s birthday at A-Frame in Culver City. We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about this place – specifically about the Furikake Kettle Corn, Baby Back Ribs, and Banana Bacon Cream Pie. We’ll be going in a group of 8, so I hopefully I can get everyone on-board with ordering the Big Hat Punch (rye, brandy, rum, tea, lemon, and prosecco) – a giant punch prepared for large groups.

We’re also getting together for a family BBQ. Josh’s parents are making burgers and his aunt is bringing potato salad. We’re in charge of the salad – the current plan is mixed greens, fresh figs, shaved Manchego, pistachios, and a roasted shallot vinaigrette. I’m also surprising Josh’s grandfather with Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for Homemade Oreos.

Enjoy your weekend!
