Ravinia, 2010 Summer Fun

The rain kept its distance allowing 14 dames and guests to enjoy a night under the stars dining on picnic fare and listening to Arrival, the Swedish cover band who performed the music of ABBA at the 13th annual Dames Who Drink Ravinia Picnic. The food ranged from Swedish open faced sandwiches on limpa bread with a side of herring, oven fried chicken, Swedish carrots, peach and basil salad, fruit salad, burrata cheese on prosciutto with fresh figs and panzanella salad to rich, delicious chocolate peanut butter cookies. Maria Concannon made a brief appearance on Karen’s porch to supply the guests with her fabulous guacamole, chips and salsa that went so well with the traditional porch starter, the Margaritas from the Chicago Cooks cookbook. A good time was had by all. —Karen Levin
