She picked a really tasty multi-course meal, and I followed as best I could.
|White Wine Spritzer|
First up, though, was a cocktail! We each chose a fun drink to create--a white wine spritzer for her and a grapefruit margarita spritzer for me.
For the menu, Meredith chose Lemon Chicken, Spinach Goat Cheese Pasta, and Strawberry Field Greens Salad with Poppy Seed Vinaigrette.
I followed along as best I could, loosely following this recipe for lemon chicken served over spinach, with pesto tortellini and grape tomatoes.
A lot more chatting than cooking occurred at the beginning of our dinner party, but considering she was 3 hours ahead of me, we soon transitioned to wielding knives and skillets.

|This is what you get when you make all three dishes!|
|This is only one of the pre-selected courses, but at least I had some sunlight left. Poor M ate about 10pm...|
It was a fun way, nevertheless, to keep up our tradition of cooking together.
