Food, glorious food.
The Paramour, his brother and his wife, my brother and his wife, Etheline and that Kevin and, then of course, bringing up the rear, moi.
I want to make something that I can do most of the prep work earlier in the day, so that I don't end up hovered over a hot stove while folk are getting nicely sozzled in the sitting room.
I want something I can put together last minutes and keep and eye on, but not sweat about. For desert I am making a rhubarb crumble with custard for I love rhubarb and would lick it from a scabby leg and so do the rest of my clan. For a starter I was thinking a Greek salad with feta cheese and black olives-although depending on the weather I might change that to French Onion soup. But for the main? Any suggestions? I was thinking something solidly meaty like beef, but I like the idea of trying something completly different. All recepies and suggestions would be appreciated.
Off in town for a meeting now for a ridiculously stupid early meeting. At least this not sleeping malarky means I'm up and about with the lark.
Huzzah, sliver linings abound.
