What is the color of money, of envy, of Spring?
The answer: a perfect party theme!
The Dean decided to give an all-green dinner party in honor of both the weather and the surname of an esteemed invitee. So, green plates, green cocktails, green foods became the theme of the night. Luckily the guest of honor was amused. His eyes twinkled when he heard that a theme was involved, and twinkled even more when he heard that the theme was no doubt his favorite color.
Generally themes are too silly to be discussed (with the exception of Halloween), but a green theme is not too serious. Maybe a little silly, but so what? It’s fun! Anything to please a guest, and any excuse to serve margaritas at cocktail hour.
- Middle Eastern Watercress soup
- Roasted King Salmon, with chive sauce, spring onions & sautéed asparagus
- Micro-green salad with tiny croutons
- Roasted pears with crunchy pistachios, saffron and green cardamon sauce
The centerpiece? Greens snipped from the public park across the street. Shhh...
