Last weekend we were invited to our friends Pallavi and Parag’s for a springtime dinner gathering of friends. Heading over to Pallavi and Parag’s is always a fun evening with good company and scrumptious dinner all prepared by Pallavi and her Mom. Pallavi and her Mom love to cook and they go all out to make the most delectable meal. This particular dinner coincidentally was on the Saturday of St. Patrick’s Day, and all the guests were wondering if that was the reason for the gathering. Not really, it was just a dinner to get a few friends together but Pallavi went along with it, “Sure, we can call it a St. Patrick’s Day dinner. We like to celebrate all festivals 😃.” As expected this dinner was outstanding! Here is a look at what was on the menu for the evening.
