Reblogging for posterity, and to mention that NSH forgot the most important dish of the evening: alcoholic whipped cream from a can, which she & CL picked up on a beer run as a special present for me.
Z’s first East coast birthday party was the best, from the caper-and-breadcrumb deviled eggs (basically these two recipes mashed together) to the oysters Z shucked in no time at all, to her amazing (and vegetarian!) French onion soup, to the bread and cheese. And that’s not even mentioning her two birthday cakes — this red wine one and T’s fudgey flower-topped one.
