Closing out the menu for my dinner with friends, dessert! Wanting something very easy (sorbet) but also with a homemade touch, I decided to try one of recipes from the InStyle magazine party guide page I keep talking about, Ginger Pecans.

Adri Likes… Thai Crumbled Beef in Lettuce Wraps
The third easy dish I made for my dinner with friends was Nigella Lawson’s Thai Crumbled Beef in Lettuce Wraps. I first came across this dish when I bought Nigella’s Forever Summer cookbook in 2003. I have made many wonderful dishes from that cookbook, and this one remains one of my favorites.

Continuing on to the next dish that I served for my friends at my easy dinner party, the Beef-Scallion Skewers. As I mentioned in the original Tuna Tartare Chips post, while browsing InStyle magazine back in 2006, I came across a party guide section that included wonderful and easy recipes that I have made multiple times and are always a hit. The Beef-Scallion Skewers are part of those recipes and like the tuna tatare chips, they are also very easy to make and super flavorful.

When I had my friends over for dinner, one of the dishes I made was the Tuna Tartare Chips. I know I have written about them before, but since last time I didn’t have pictures of the steps, I decided to re-post with updated pictures.
