Dinner at Debbie & Jerry’s

I don’t usually write about private dinners, but Debbie and Jerry are such gracious hosts and we had such a lovely time there this weekend, that I wanted to thank them publicly.  We were joined by another fun couple we both know, and had a lovely meal out on the patio with perfect weather, great food, great wine and great friends.

Debbie had a tomato tart prepared for appetizers and a babaganoush with pita chips, and olives.  Just right.

The first course was a roasted beet and goat cheese salad.  We also had some warm sesame bread with gourmet olive oil for dipping.  The salad was delicious, and I’m not even that huge a beet fan.

We then enjoyed halibut with a tomato caper sauce that was juicy, tender and full of flavor.  This was accompanied by a vermicelli/rice blend and green beans in a savory sauce.

Dessert was mini cheesecake indulgences, a la Season’s 52, but I’d say Debbie’s were better.

Now, we also drank a little.  Some of us drank a lot.  We enjoyed Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc, Rochioli Chardonnay, Cakebread Chardonnay Reserve, and Justin Cabernet Sauvignon.  Followed by Corvoisier, Remy, and Grand Marnier.

An all together wonderful evening, made better by our hosts desire that everyone really have a wonderful time (as always!).  Thanks D&J!
