This was an untraditional Sunday night dinner. We invited a couple of friends over for what I have been calling "snacks". It wasn't really intended to be dinner, since it was more just some stuff thrown together. I love these kinds of meals.
I had made a couple of things earlier that day that we snacked on:
That is a cauliflower and carmelized onion tart, from Smitten Kitchen. I had made this once before, a long time ago and had forgotten about this recipe. I'm hoping that by posting it here I won't forget it again. It's pretty time consuming but the results are fantastic.
I also made this penne frittata with basil and ricotta which I found off of Sunday Suppers. I love how the cross section of this looks. Kev insisted that it "tasted like Christmas". I still can't figure out why that would be. I think we all liked the cauliflower tart better - I'm not sure that I would make the frittata again. It was good - just not anything special.
Throw in some cherry tomatoes, avocado and the famous Tartine bread that we love and you've got yourself a meal.
And if you're still hungry you can always make some (very rustic looking) ice cream sandwiches.
