How many women host dinner parties when 4 weeks away from bringing their first child into the world? I hope I am as much of a super woman as our friend Heather (someday - not today. Mom, don't get any ideas!) Along with her husband Matt - they hosted a great Sunday dinner with a few friends. All of the food was fantastic - but the dessert was the perfect end note and effectively stole the show (or my memory at least!)
The lemon ice cream was refreshing - but still creamier than a sorbet. I have been promised the recipe (M&H - feel free to post in comments or email me to post!) This recipe has the feeling of a family secret - so I feel lucky to be granted access. Another bonus with the dessert - the angel food cake was drizzled with a powder sugar glaze (milk, butter and pwd sugar) with lemon juice and lemon zest added. Perfect!
A lovely summer dinner. Thanks!
