Supper Club: Our first meeting

The Hoff had a fantastic idea: gather up a group of friends and form a supper club. She hosted and cooked for our first meeting, but we'll rotate hosts for future meetings and it'll be more of a potluck. We started with chicken breasts marinaded with a spice rub.

A lovely barley risotto with peppers and olives. It was delicious. I wasn't expecting barley to turn out as creamy as arborio rice.

This salad was my favorite of the night. I love arugula and its peppery bite. It's paired with a cider vinaigrette, goat cheese, and dates. What a great mixture of flavors... the peppery and bitter arugula, sweet and chewy dates, tart goat cheese, and a mild vinaigrette to tie it all together.

I love the Hoff's vintage style. This dinner set is awesome and she has a fantastic vintage flair throughout her home.

The next one will be at D.B. and D.D.'s. Can't wait!

Haha...its been a long day. I think that most people who read the earlier comment would be confused. I meant to say I was also anticipating meeting you on Sunday. Hope to meet up sometime soon again.
