Let the music sink down into your soul

This weekend, we had a little party.

We had things to celebrate. Springtime. Friends. The world premiere of Patrick's new band. An abundance of bell peppers. Folks in another band, coming in from out of town to share the show.

At 11am Saturday morning, I began cooking in earnest. The house would soon be full of music, and hungry, hungry people. Enchiladas were in order.

The Menu

Chips and two different kinds of homemade salsa
Avocado-Citrus Salad (which convenienty matched the table runner)
Rice & Black beans
Pepper-Cheese Enchiladas
Mexican Brownies with Brown Sugar Topping (recipe tomorrow!)

The hour arrived. The house filled up. Beers were employed. Everyone was happy and generous, and no one had to be told twice to "Eat!" The best guests don't hesitate.

And after bottles were emptied and plates were cleaned, we all headed down to the cafe for the show.

Patrick and his pedal steel, far right.


It was a perfect little party.

Your kitchen is so lovely! The color, the white cabinets -- the space. I heart it very much.

Thanks! Ever since I saw your kitchen (which I reciprocally heart) I've been thinking of doing my own kitchen tour post. Maybe someday, when it's clean enough. :)

What fun!

As the Mom of a rock band's lead singer I know how it is to "feed the troops." I miss it now that they have grown up. At least they still rock!

Totally digging Patrick's band too. Fanned 'em on the facebook. What is a Dutch Bucket System? Sounds like a fire brigade!

Becky-- I'm sure they'll appreciate the fan-dom. A dutch bucket system is actually a type of hydroponic growing system. One of the band members is a hardcore gardener.
