4 for $40

so, i'm going to try an ongoing experiment. I'm going to put on dinner parties for four people, and spend only $40 on all ingredients and accouterments, including wine and flowers/table decor. i'm not a table-scaper, but i enjoy having a pretty thing in the middle, be it flowers or candles or a bowl of produce.

first on the list is roast chicken, sausage risotto, and spinach salad with walnuts, feta cheese and raspberry vinnaigrette, and some panna cotta with berry compote for dessert.

anyone of my pals interested? i'll be doing this more than once, so if i get a lot of interest, i'll try to mix up the company a bit. it should be really fun!


  1. Hey, if you're still doing them by autumn, I'm so in. I should try it, too! *dreams of lovely Charles Village apartment and actual job*

  2. you should!! are you moving back to baltimore, then? YAYE!!!!!!

  3. That's a great idea. I want to do this, too.

    And, yeah, it'd be lovely to someday end up at one of yours.
