None of the usual latenight blogging today. Dinner party earlier tonight for my mother-in-law’s birthday, and I am beat.

And when I say “beat,” I mean, “we really shouldn’t have opened that last bottle of wine.”

For those who want to know, dinner was:

Tasty cheeses and crackers and bread and butter.
Caprese salad.
This recipe, but using a 2.5 pound skirt steak instead of a flank steak.
Parsley new potatoes.
Steamed asparagus.
And for dessert, some pie-type thing Melissa made, involving mascarpone and three or four kinds of berries.

I’m just too full to think clearly. See you in the morning.
