We're back to our routine. Lulu has been focused on his work and I'm in charge of providing delicious meals for him. Last night we hosted another dinner party. To save time, I put together a healthy yet delicious strawberry and almond salad for the first course, to the delight of our guests.
Almonds are rich in protein and gave extra crunch to the salad. Strawberries provided color and natural sweetness. I wished I had found the same out-of-this-world mara des bois strawberries I had last week in Paris but thankfully the ones from our garden fit the bill wonderfully.
Throwing a dinner party doesn't have to be time-consuming. I usually try to make one elaborate dish and a quick and easy dish so I'm not too exhausted when it's time to greet our guests!
