Weekend Home Restaurants

ferns on board Saturday night we hosted an open Home Restaurant–– it was a full house.  We have a couple open dates in May and still have some reservations available for Friday May 17.  Sunday night we hosted a small celebratory dinner for a dear friend.  Great weekend, beautiful weather for cocktails in the garden both nights... and so much fun to be cooking with the abundance of spring ingredients.
