Pickled Rose Does a Thing

It's been a while, I know. If you were waiting with bated breath for our next post, I apologize. 

In our last few posts, we mentioned that we were rehersing for a big event we were putting on. Namely, preparing dinner for John's mom's 60th birthday party - with about 25 guests. Well, the party has come and gone, and I'm pleased to say that it went off without a hitch. It turns out that we're somewhat competent at this stuff, after all!

We've already written about most of the dishes you'll see in this post, so I won't spend much time describing them. However, we did get quite a few decent pictures. This won't be a particularly informative post, but rest assures that we'll be getting back into the regular swing of things soon enough, hopefully once the holidays are over.

Anyway, here are the pictures:

 

 Olive oil-poached salmon.
