For dinner, the guests enjoyed caesar salad, roasted asparagus, grilled vegetables, baked mashed potatoes, crabcakes, and beef tenderloin. The funniest thing - the mashed potatoes were the clear favorite! I find this so interesting - fancy food has it's place, but what we all really love is some good home cooking. The kind of things our grandmothers made. Comfort food.

I'll be sharing the recipes later in the week! All of the recipes or components are easy to make ahead of time. This would make a terrific dinner party menu.
