My wee Mammy and Daddy have just moved into a new house and we're now neighbours. Annie decided to have one of her infamous 'girls nights'. Consisting of a group of ten who have all been friends since I was a little girl, this menagerie get together at least every couple of months and Halloween in particular is a sight to be seen. They continue to amaze me every year with their amazing outfits!
Anyhoo, Mammy works hard so I offered to do the food. As I knew it'd be a boozy night, starchy food was the way to go. So I made them a pot of chicken risotto (recipe on blog), some pasta carbonara with garlic and rosemary focaccias, kimchee slaw, green salad and smorgastarta.
Smorgastarta is a Scandanavian celebratory sandwich cake. It's said that these have even been offered as bribes to the police to solve cases, such is their reverence. I've been longing to have a go so last night was the perfect opportunity. I left it a wee bit late though so taste triumphed over design on this occasion.
See what you think
