Weekend Indulgence

Mondays are never easy and are certainly made more difficult after a weekend where a fab meal was eaten outdoors in great company. This weekend we had beautiful weather for our BBQ with friends from NYC. Catching up was wayyy overdue and our evening together flew by faster than I would have liked.

I would be remiss if I didn’t credit my husband for his spot on preparations of both appetizer and main course and for his mad grilling skills. Michael grilled Halloumi as an appetizer and served it over fresh summer tomatoes drizzled with a garlic oil he made. We had something similar at this restaurant a while back and I must say my hubby's version was even better!

The main course was his crispy lemon chicken with rice pilaf. The chicken was seasoned and cooked perfectly and his lemon sauce always draws rave reviews. He even arranged the platter meticulously.

Dessert was bought by our guests from here and was super scrumptious.

Megan and Rajeev - Thanks for trekking all the way from The Big Apple to spend Saturday night with us! We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next get together (which will hopefully involve Mr. Waxman).....


  1. Hooray, we made the blog! Everything was so unbelievably delicious and we had so much fun! Can't wait to see you again!

  2. It's a tremendous pleasure to have guests with such enthusiasm for good food and good wine. We don't open 2000 Bordeaux for just anyone... :)
