We had a wonderful Easter lunch catching up with family and friends.  There was a threat of rain so we moved the table from the garden onto the deck to avoid a mid-meal downpour.  I usually eat way more that any one person should at these family occasions so opted for a lighter menu with no full entree, no full dessert and a selection of light salads to go with the beef.  I think the highlight for me was the white sangria – I’d not made it before but it was light and refreshing and very tasty (recipe here).   The babies even co-oporated by timing their sleeps so all three were asleep while we ate.  Thank you little ones.

    I love it! The beef looks very special. Had you made it before? I’m always afraid of making amazing meat dishes for the first time with guests. You certainly went the extra mile! Wish I was sitting at that table with y’all. 🙂

      I know – I’m always nervous to cook big joints of meat for guests also as if you don’t get it right, there’s no turning back! Whereas a pasta or something similar you can always ‘fix’. For this cut of beef, I used a recipe from here: http://culinaryarts.about.com/od/beefporkothermeats/r/Prime-Rib-Roast-3.htm and before returning it at a high heat, brushed some harissa paste onto the beef – it worked a treat.
