Gourmet Girls met together for the first time on August 7, 2007 at Dr. Rowan's pad. The evening began with Lara's "Marinated Cheeses". Andrea provided her famous "Green Grapes and Pasta Salad." Lynley did not disappoint with her amazing "Filet Mignon with Merlot Reduction" (pictured). Jodi brought the side dish, "Orzo Pilaf" (from Favorites), Bridget made her first batch of homemade rolls ("Jane's Homemade Rolls", also from Favorites), and L.S. whipped up some Mint Chocolate-Chip ice-cream with fresh mint leaves from her garden. We had a fabulous evening!
