Paul and I hosted our dinner group on Saturday. It was a fun, fun evening for us. We worked together for two days to prepare the dishes for the summer menu we selected.
You can find the food recipes in my collection.
Paul used his napkin folding skills and we found flowers and herbs in our yard to "top off" the table setting.
All of the preparations were worth every minute to us because we love to get together with these people!!! We have known Char and Joe Koppi
and Pam and Dave Jaye
for over thirty years. In the six years we have been a dinner group, Paul and I have grown very comfortable cooking for them. All four are excellent cooks and we are all very supportive of each other's culinary experimentations.
After dinner, we sat on the patio and discussed what is right (and wrong) with the world while the guys smoked cigars.
We would have solved all problems, but a thunderstorm interrupted us. I guess we will have to take care of that the next time we get together.
Paul and I are going to finally get the camper out of the yard at the end of the week. Hurray! I'll talk to you soon. Until then, bon appétit!
