Our friend Sagar came over last weekend for dinner. He is quite the foodie, and is intimidating to cook for. (The type of foodie who spent six months working on a croissant recipe until it was perfected.)
So… I over thought this. We ended up grilling steaks, with carmelized onions and mushrooms. We roasted sprouts and asparagus, made some pesto with basil from the garden and made bread. The bread was a multi-day process, but it was well worth it.
Also, there was chocolate whiskey cake. And it was a bit dry, but I loved it.
Add the rest of that whiskey to the party, and it became a partaaaay. We did end up drinking quite a bit of whiskey, but I couldn’t help myself. It was delicious! Plus, he had some engraved whiskey glasses that had never been used before so it would have been rude not to use them. It felt really good drinking whiskey from a proper whiskey glass, like a true gentleman, compared to just an ordinary tumbler. I think every time we spend time together now, we’ll have a little whiskey and reminisce about the great night we had. It was fun to spend time with Sagar and his pup, Voo. I can’t wait to do it again sometime.
