Today I have been creative in a different way - in the kitchen! We have our lovely friends Natalie and Steve coming over for dinner tonight, so I have chosen three totally new dishes to try out! Scary! We go to each other's homes for dinner every other month or so, and so all my trusted dinner party recipes have long since been used! Natalie and Steve are also real foodies so the pressure is on!
Tonight (Matthew!!!) I am cooking
* Asparagus and crab salad
* Roasted duck breast with plum sauce on creamed potatoes with buttered spinach, and
* Chocolate mousse cake with poached whisky pears and ginger mascarpone
I am all prepared as much as I can be, so fingers crossed that everything goes according to plan. Since it is so warm, we are planning to eat outside - I have bought citronella tealights and will put loads out round the table in jam jars, and we have hung little chinese lanterns under the umbrella for extra ambience.
I will try and remember to take photos, but might well forget in the heat of the moment!
Didn't get much stitching done last night - too much talking about crafting instead! However, the little that I did do will probably give away what it is! I'm loving your guesses!
