Less Is More

Recently, a friend raved to me about the marvelous meal she enjoyed at the home of a friend’s daughter. It consisted of only two dishes: A luscious vegetable lasagna, made with béchamel sauce and layered with two remarkably delicious vegetable mixtures; and a beet and blood orange salad, that was as satisfying as it was spectacular.

I’m always ramping up my menus with extra items. It’s an insecurity that doesn’t necessarily result in a more impressive dinner, but does make entertaining more exhausting. A few special dishes, lovingly made, should be sufficient.
