Dinner with Friends

On Saturday, we joined our friends, Paul and Chris, at the movies. We saw "ShowBusiness", which is a really good documentary that goes behind the scenes of 4 Broadway musicals from their beginnings and follows them to the the 2004 Tony's. The movie was very entertaining, funny and gave some nice glimpses of all the work that goes into mounting a show. If you like Broadway shows, you will love this movie. I would have like to have seen more musical numbers, but I'm sure there were some proprietary issues to deal with.

After the movie we headed to our house for dinner. I had everything prepped ahead of time and was able to get dinner together within 30 minutes. I really should do that more often, it made things much less stressful and I was able to enjoy our company, instead of spazzing in the kitchen. We served Caprese , Glazed Carrots w/ Cointreau , Grilled Chicken with Basil Dressing and a boxed risotto that I added a cup of thawed frozen peas,1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese and some chopped flatleaf parsley. The dinner was good and the conversation was great! For dessert we had a Fruit Tart from the Pastry Goddess at Briarcliff Village. It was a cream filled tart covered in strawberries, raspberries , blackberries and blueberries. Like everything we have bought there, it was good. Overall, it was a very nice afternoon and evening.
