Our friends Satya Sara and Krishna Bhajan are moving back to England. Due to vacation plans, we weren’t going to be able to make it to their going away party. So, we had them over for dinner.
Their daughter, my BFF Padi, is vegan, so I tried to plan the menu accordingly. Dairy items marked with an *.
Butternut Squash Raviolis w/ Pesto
Sweet Cherry Pie with Lemon Curd Topping
The vegan lemon curd topping was the perfect accompaniment to the sweet cherry pie, which lacks all the charm of a traditional sour cherry pie otherwise.
Thanks to our guests, Martinelli’s, vegan ice cream and sorbet were also served to the masses of children.
I really will miss SS and KB who have shown nothing but kindness to our children. SS babysat the kids when I was attending classes and, even though she got my daughter hooked on chewing gum and spoiled the kids with candy, she was always extremely loving and kind. And she often cleaned up my kitchen.
Have a great trip to your Motherland!
