Field Report: TIP Party!

Hoorah! Last night's TIP party and potluck went swimmingly. The culinary wizardry and curious palates of the guests provided a rich gastronomic experience for all. Notable delights not pictured included a delicious South Indian Eggplant Curry with brown rice, a Key Lime Pie, a Whole Wheat Cheese Bread, and a Strawberry Basil Rum n' Lemonade. Thanks to everyone who came and brought amazing food!

Harry salts the pot.

Wes's Ten Ingredient Tomato Tartin (homemade whipped cream out of frame)

James, Laura and Jessica snack on raw veggies dipped in spicy peanut butter. Also in frame: a platter of my Lazy Falafel.

Gathered round the coffee table with fruit salad and guacamole.

Phillip's Nicoise salad

James' s Tomato, Nectarine and Red Onion Salad

Nicoise Salad with tuna, green and red beans and new potatoes. I didn't eat this because I'm a veggie, but this dish is exactly in the spirit of the TIP!
