Very Last Minute Dinner Party
Does your husband ever do this to you?
Its 11pm at night and he asks you if it is okay that he moved dinner with friends up a week and maybe added a few more guests, all of whom have lived in or are visiting from Spain. You know you can’t throw together some sour cream enchiladas or taco salad (we aren’t fond of those two things anyway) for these people. They know how to eat! They have lived or are currently living in SPAIN!
So you then you grab a cookbook on your way out of the house as you rush to a very empty, very dark grocery store wondering what in the world you are going to come up with to serve your dinner guests.
Well, in case this does happen to you let me TELL you what to do and I guarantee you will pull together quite an amazing feast.
By now it’s almost midnight. What grocery store is going to have fresh bread you can serve? No one, believe me. But man, all you need to do is rub it with olive oil, season it, wrap it in foil and warm it up. That’s all it takes.
I am about to tell you one of my biggest secrets, the recipe for the perfect no-fail, restaurant-quality alfredo sauce. One stick of unsalted butter, one stick of cream cheese, one cup of cream and one cup of fresh Parmesan.
Perfect consistency without fail.
No time for something from scratch, no time for something that didn’t take less than a couple of minutes. How could this have been one of the best cakes I have ever made? Well, let me tell you!
Voila! “Crazy, Late-Notice Dinner Party” done! We loved having you guys!
