dinner at our place
I spent the afternoon creating a scrumptious Chinese style lamb roast, a recipe my mother-in-law found. I served it with a salad of figs, fetta, rocket (arugula) and a spicy pomegranate gourmet dressing. Lest we get too sophisticated, I kept dessert fun and child-like with spiders (floats). Our guests loved it! We talked until midnight, laughing, sharing stories of our different childhoods and writing on napkins. With heavy eyes we reluctantly ended it, knowing there are many more nights to continue our conversations. After we stacked the dishwasher, I placed their gift on the bench so it would greet me in the morning. Sure enough, I rose the next day and smiled when I saw the bag and recalled a great night entertaining friends.
