I'm still lazy

Last Friday, my newly married friends, Anna and Alan (read about them here), invited Zack and me over for dinner. They've got all sorts of cool stuff now (note to self - find a way to register for cool stuff without getting married), like a soft serve ice cream maker, panini grill and matching plates. They served us some amazing food to go with their spiffy flatware. First, we had grilled peaches with blue cheese and aged balsamic.

These were so freaking good. The peach just melted away in your mouth and it was a great mix of sweet and savory. Then we followed up with Coq Au Van (made in a slow cooker - should I get a slow cooker?), green bean almondine and cornbread with crazy whiskey butter.

Then came cute store bought cookies...

...and the kicker, homemade soft serve nectarine ice cream.

It all was super delicious. It is so nice to have good company and food all at the same time. Is there really anything better? As much as I love to cook for people, it is just as nice to have others do the same for me sometimes (hint, hint). Thanks Anna and Alan!

Sounds lovely. One of these days I'm going to have a formal dinner party with courses and such. I've done it with Michael but never here alone.
