A great evening was had by all.
Two days of planning and prep work went into a very successful evening.
Entree :Zuppa Di Pesce
I made my own fish stock for this dish, well worth the effort, an amazing dish.
A very successful entree, enjoyed by most, minus one allergic to shellfish... Tom!
Main consisted of an assortment of salads, exotic mango salad, roasted vegetable salad, coleslaw and Greek salad, baked barramundi, snags, rissoles and eye fillet steak and marinated chicken wings.
Iced Vo Vo slice, white chocolate rose water mousse, Portuguese tarts, hazelnut chocolate cup cakes, chocolate and coffee syrup pancotta, made by my dear friend Sandy, most ended up on the floor, accidentally dropped out of a very packed fridge, but what was left was delicious.
I also made Sangria, I am not sure who enjoyed it the most, me.....or Janet.
Our outdoor dining area and table, set ready for guests.
Enjoying the food and company.
Our intimate gathering
Thank you also to my two wonderful sons, Alex for cooking the BBQ and Nigel for putting his butcher skills into practice and also my long suffering DH who did a wonderful job of entertaining and all the washing up.
What have I been up to lately in quilting land...
Attempting to get my last 12 months worth of quilts completed.
Borders nearly completed, measures 113 inches, this is a big one, only one side to go. When did I say that I was going to make normal sized quilts, must have been after this quilt.!
Love this fabric so made a skirt, just love the flamingos.
My noodle box, http://chrisquilts.blogspot.com/borders to be added, then off to the quilter.
That's it for now, less than a month till we fly off to France for Pour L'Amour Du Fil in Nantes.
