Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! After yesterday's morning tea party, I dashed off to work with a client in the afternoon and returned home to prepare for the day's second entertaining event. Matt and Jon were arriving for dinner at 7:00.
coq au vin was prepared ahead on Wednesday night and ready to go. To go along with the chicken, I made the Pioneer Woman's recipe for mashed potatoes, which keep warm in the oven until you're ready to serve. To start off the meal, I made a basic green salad with a bit of feta cheese and vinaigrette made with meyer lemon.
The table was set with Ikea linens, everyday dishes and the dinner set from my silver case.
