Actually, we made this recipe before, with a different set of people, but we couldn't find passion fruit back then. So when we were in the grocery store, we immediately made an executive decision to substitute pineapple for passion fruit. This time, we knew where to look, so we found some passion fruit puree, and we used that. It turned out well actually.
Our friends brought dessert, which consisted of raspberry lime tarts, and that was awesome. And they also brought a bottle of sauvignon blanc, and that was a good compliment to the chicken.
Needless to say, the best part of the dinner was the dynamics. I'm of the type that prefers smaller but more intimate gatherings, so just having four people in the room is actually a good thing. Not a lot of people, and everyone has enough wiggle room. I liked that.
So yeah, our latest dinner hosting event was a success. I'm very pleased.
