Dinner at the Coop


This past weekend, Mr. Wonderful and I, along with our dear friends Kelly and Linda who we met from small group, headed to Boho Farm and Home‘s Dinner at the Coop.  This is her amazing backyard, you can see it at the Arcadia’s Edible Garden Tour later this month.

You may have seen Caroline and her home on my blog, starting with a previous dinner here, and Caroline’s headshots on my blog here, here and her home tour here.  You can say we go way back, actually, we do – she used to mentor me when I was a new Christian in this sweet home of hers.  She was the best person ever to help me through the refinement, renewing of my mind, and some life obstacles.


This was our third time for her Dinner at the Coop, here we are with Kelly and Linda.  Kelly left the following morning for a mission trip to India for a week so this was a perfect send off meal.

Five course meal – farm to table.

Yes, this is Phoenix, see it’s not all desert landscape!  I hope one day our backyard will look like this.


Find a seat, as a delightfully delicious five-course meal is brought to your table, fresh from the kitchen of Boho Farm and Home.

Caroline walks around table to table to say hello and explain where the ingredients came from and what she made – like the goat cheese, or the pecans she got from her mother-in-law’s home.


You can bring along some wine, or in my case, Pellegrino, if alcohol makes you blush.

I’m going to try my best to explain the dishes from what I remember, but Caroline can probably refine it.

Bacon covered dates.


Carrot soup with ginger and coconut milk.


A arugula salad with pear, pomegranate seeds (from Caroline’s yard) and pecans (from her mother-in-law).


Beef – I apologize I got way too excited it was beef I didn’t pay attention to the details but what I can say – it was beyond amazing.


Apple galette with Caroline’s home made ice cream that had duck eggs which made it rich and creamy.  And I thought my homemade ice cream was good, this totally has it beat.


Full tummies from great food paired with a great time with meaningful conversation and company, how can that be beat?  Hope you can join next time – but make sure you follow Caroline because her dinners sell out under 48 hours after they are announced.  I’m not going to lie when I say I pulled some friendship strings to get on the list before she started planning the next one ;)


There’s a lot going on with Boho Farm & Home so follow along!
