Entertaining Idea: Chalkboard Menu

Yesterday was cold and rainy - the kind of day to curl up on the couch in over-sized sheep patterned, flannel pajamas, peruse Pinterest, and then make Superbowl chili. We had dinner plans at our friends' house later in the evening, and I was so looking forward to a cozy Saturday night in, enjoying good company and a home-cooked meal.

When we arrived for dinner, I immediately noticed this vintage style chalkboard on the wall, displaying the evening's menu. I especially loved how the hostess structured the meal in Italian courses: antipasto, primo, secondo and dolce (all of which were amazing).

My friend bought her chalkboard from a vendor at D.C.'s Eastern Market. But if you search "vintage chalkboard" or "kitchen chalkboard" on Etsy, you'll find tons of options. If you're a DIY girl, pair a cool frame with a piece of frameless chalkboard.

FYI - potato mushroom gratin is the most wonderful thing in the world. Here is a recipe from Smitten Kitchen that sounds delish.
