April dinner: yellow and purple

April’s colors are yellow and purple. Yellow is pretty workable, but purple is a little bit of a challenge. I wasn’t able to find all the supplies I was looking for, so I had to make some small changes at the last minute and we ended up with a smaller and simpler special dinner than usual, but we still had a good time.

The main course was an omelet stuffed with fried eggplant. The eggplant lost some of its purple color in being fried, but it still came through in places.

For dessert we had lemon sorbet with blackberry compote.

To drink, we had mead from the meadery in Virginia, kindly delivered by my folks on their way through town.
