Appetizer: Fruit and Cheese Plate. I was feeling lazy this week, probably due to my excitement for the upcoming three day weekend. So, I asked the cheesemonger at Schnucks to help me out. I ended up with brie, English Huntsman and Asiago with Rosemary and Olive Oil. These all pared very well with the strawberries and red grapes.
Entree: Curried Chicken Salad. A light curried chicken salad that wasn’t overly sweet and a good choice for the summer.
Dessert: Chai Cupcakes with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting. A flavorful cupcake that was a bit dry. Kate steeped 6 teabags instead of 5 that may have decreased the amount of milk needed for the batter. The recipe for frosting can be cut in half because following the recipe would create way too much on 16 cupcakes. And the frosting was a bit runny so you may need to decrease the amount of liquids.
