Real Food Dinner Party

Jared and I had a couple over for dinner last night, and I thought I would share my “real food” menu. Everyone seemed to really like the meal– especially the dessert! Recipe links included.

Appetizer:

Homemade kale pesto (http://theglitterguide.com/2013/03/01/recipe-file-kale-pesto/) over cream cheese block, served with triscuits (Ak-Mak crackers would also be great).

Entree:

Braised short ribs (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/beef-short-ribs-recipe/index.html), creamy polenta (no recipe for this– just boiled half milk and half water to make the polenta and then added grated Parmesan), and lightly dressed greens (just whipped up a white wine lemon vinaigrette).

Dessert:

Whole wheat applesauce cake (http://www.eatliverun.com/whole-wheat-applesauce-loaf-cake/but I didn’t make the frosting) served with homemade caramel sauce (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/easy-caramel-sauce-recipe/index.html)

While this meal wasn’t exactly low fat, it was really delicious and made with all organic, real food ingredients. And most importantly, my guests and my husband liked everything!
