Though all my posts were written eons ago, time specific events such as Christmas made me feel compelled to reiterate how post dated it was. I would not like people to think that I was looking forward to Christmas in January.
We planned a gathering at my place.
I suggested to prepare dinner for the kids so that they would dine and be done before the adults took the dinner.
I cooked rice and herbal chicken soup. When my girlfriends came over, they pitched in and we made our first ever fish shepherd pie! It was based on this recipe.
When the pie was in the oven, we prepared the rest. There was baked mushrooms with mentaiko dressing with mozzarella cheese, baked tomatoes with herbs and mayonnaise, sautéed green, pan seared scallops and steak.
It was a lovely evening with good food, good wine, good sweets and good company.
