We invited our friends Carol and Mike over for dinner Saturday night. The Nuggets were scheduled to start play-off at 6:30, so my dinner menu needed to be mostly prepared in advance with minimal cooking after guests arrived at 5:00. I decided on a Rick Bayless short rib recipe, L.A. Potato Salad that was in the refrigerator by noon and ready to go, and my most favorite Berry and spinach salad.
Carol, (hereinafter referred to as the Flan-ista) impressively prepared Pat Argall’s famous Cream Cheese Flan. Carol also brought some amazing Marcona Almonds. The Marcona Almond recipe is adapted from an original recipe from Ubuntu Restaurant in the San Francisico Bay area
