Well I don't usually do this but


Thursday, August 09, 2012

My friend came round for dinner tonight. Eventually. 1 hour 15 minutes late and as all keen cooks know, this is murder.

Anyway, things went surprisingly smoothly, except I forgot to cook the aforementioned spinach. This is still in the kitchen, next to the washing up.

So we have the salad with goat cheese and croutes, which is likely to make me have interesting dreams:



The rack of lamb, which should stir my conscience because the lamb was so young and tender. But doesn't:



The clafoutis of cherries which we nearly polished off between two of us although it's for four people, theoretically:



There was definitely wine around too. I remember opening the second bottle.

Tomorrow, I will be good.

    I remember my inlaws showing up for Christmas dinner at 1.15 when I had told them it would be "on the table at one". No way of keeping everything warm so they had to have each plate served then microwaved. You have done so well.
I'm sure it was the wine fairies that opened that second bottle!

    It all sounds wonderful - but rack of lamb!! One of my favorites. Could we please have that soon at the cybercafe?

Sounds like you had a good time.

  It sounds (and looks) like a wonderful meal. It's good to enjoy a well-prepared meal in good company from time to time - and you definitely get brownie points for remaining civil after your friend showed up so very late!
