*side note: I don't know that I've told you all the story about my china. When I lived in Oxford I went to a garage sale in a nice neighborhood and there was a 13 piece place setting, dinner plates, salad plates, tea cups, tea cup saucers, 3 or 4 serving platters and maybe some other stuff. It's Lenox Olympia - the solid creamy white plate with a fine silver rim around it. So, are you envisioning all of this? 50 bucks. yup $50 for all of that goodness. The lady had registered for all of that china when she married the first time and they divorced and she was remarried and decided to rid of it. I bought it and the rest is history.
Ok so back to the dinner party. Chip grilled fresh redfish on the shell that he caught the other weekend on the coast. We had grilled basalmic asparagus, rice, bread and a salad with strawberries, feta and sunflower seeds.

For dessert I made a baked alaska cake. I don't mean to brag (yes I do) but it was awesome!
