A few days ago we had our good friends Ben and Mary over for dinner- it had been quite some time, and we really needed to catch up. We've been dealing with our lovely elderly dog, and decided it was best not to try to go out for dinner, so we invited them to our place.
It's been a while since I've had the chance to 'really' cook a meal...here's the result of our tasty little mini-feast.
|first- find the flowers for the table|
|cut and put in place|
and our guests arrive
|Spiced Chickpeas as an early crunchy treat...so tasty|
---and onto dinner---
|lovely mini Caresse bites|
|Asparagus and goat cheese puffs- delish.|
|prepping, carrots, shallots, thyme in white wine|
|Halibut a la Barigoule|
|and the finishing touch- apricots with chocolate and pistachios- num!|
