Some friends actually invited me over for dinner, and I'm really excited to try someone else's cooking for a change. Of course it has been drilled into my head since an early age never to show up empty handed, so I'm bringing this cute edible arrangement over as a hostess gift. I found these chilies at my favorite Asian farmer at the Brentwood farmer's market, and added some fragrant Thai Basil leaves to complete this incredible, edible bouquet. If you have a nice herb garden consider plucking some herbs as a nice hostess gift, or bring some of your surplus zucchini. Good cooks love fresh veggies, and it is a nice simple gesture that will set a tone of goodwill and friendship.
