Dinner Party on a BudgetPosted: March 12, 2010
Last night we had some friends over for dinner and at first, I was a bit stumped as to what we could make that would feed us all and hopefully still provide some leftovers. With the help of one of my favorite cookbooks, we had golden rice with curried squash and homemade chapatis. Dessert was chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream (our friends brought some heavy cream) and meringue bits.
The frugal story about dessert is that the other day I was craving something sweet and decided to make meringues. Since meringues only require using up egg whites, I decided to save the yolks and figure out a way to use them this week, hence, the chocolate pudding.
Recipes will be up soon, but I thought this picture was worth posting as it’s an extremely dreary day in NYC.
