Dinner club

Every Thursday night for a while now we have had dinner club with John, Chris, Will (James' younger brothers) and Jeremy. Recently it has changed a bit cause some of them (I won't mention names) got all grownup and went to college. We miss them but dinner club continues and we've added others. This week Carol will join us (and maybe her dog Jake...Hudson needs dinner club too). Every Thursday I will post the menu for that evening and some pictures if I remember to take them. I love dinner club because I get to try out new recipes and see some of my favorite people.

Here's the menu for tonight....
Sugar snap pea and Radish Salad

Potato and Garlic Pierogi

Pork chops with onion Compote

Chocolate Trifle


I try to get creative and make something we haven't had before. The trifle is sort of a lazy move by me since I've made it a million times. But it's so good I started thinking about it and had to have it. All the other recipes this time are courtesy of Martha Stewart.

Everything looked so good. I was actually wondering if I could get the recipe for the pierogies. That sounds so good.
