Dinner With The Girls

I shared Friday night with 3 of my lovelies at Heathers cozy pad. On the menu, her delicious fig tart, here.

Clare's perfect endive salad dressed to perfection. No doubt, with cue's taken from her time spent with the In Laws in France.

And my fall favorite, butternut squash soup. I had no time to prepare it on Friday so 2E made it for us. So cute!! He garnished it with the top of the squash and some rosemary sprigs a la Martha. I wish we had photographed it before the reheat.

Butternut Squash Soup

Cut squash into 1-inch chunks and steam. Transfer to the Cuisinart and puree, adding half a cup of peanuts as you go. Return the squash to a pan and add 6 cups of stock. Bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Our meal ended with a variety of delicious cupcakes Jeana (who also took these great pictures) picked up at Joan's on 3rd and, of course, libations. Dee-lish!

An amazing looking fig tart. I'm sure the flavor and texture of the pine nuts really complemented the sweet figs well. This was a savory tart, right?
