A Spot of Entertaining:


IMG_2929This week has been a social week for us. Entertaining doesn’t happen often. We link up with Chris’ two retired colleagues from work and their wives at each other’s homes on a regular basis. (These three men taught art at Monash University). On Tuesday we had not only this group, but also some of their ex-students, 40 years on, as well! We were a group of 10. The spring weather was perfect, so we could eat outdoors. It was wonderful hearing how these individuals are all continuing to paint, and how they were/are influenced by their teachers.

      Glad you asked Elaine! Started with: proscuitto and cantaloupe, cheese/fruit and champagne,(that someone kindly brought). Then we had a bowl of chickens, fennel and blood orange salad with a touch of ginger in the dressing, roasted pumpkin,green leaves, feta cheese and roasted walnuts and a touch of maple syrup in the balsamic dressing, and another salad with lettuce greens, asparagus, avocado, tomato; all accompanied by red/white wine, or soft options. Dessert was my homemade apple strudel with a touch of added crystallised ginger served on my large Asian plate accompanied by strawberries, and a lemon merengue pie looking and tasting superb, even if I say so myself!! I was too busy to take pictures!! I did think of you Elaine, wondering how you always manage to take such superb pictures, as well as concocting such wonderful treats!
