Friday Evening Dinner

Scrimp skewered on sticks

Herbed Bread

Salad with tomato and avocado

Rice Pilaf with Lentils

Sauteed Kale

Lovely dinner conversation.

Theology, literature, culture, world events.

One of my friends playing classical guitar later on

in the evening.

A Mango sorbet with coconut milk,

sesame seed wafers and

vegan chocolate shavings

in tea cups.


Prayers at the end of the evening.

A lovely time of fellowship, friendship and food.

Your dinner parties always look so effortless although I'm sure they're not. It really is a gift to be able to put such lovely food in a lovely setting and make it seem natural.

Thanks! I guess I should of mentioned that this time all I did is provide the bread :) My dinners are always a group effort...

there were 4 of us women doing the cooking and prep while the men folk stayed out of the way :)

I'll have to do a post about how I actually do my dinner parties... :)

My Thanksgiving dinner I will do a bit more of the work but even then I never do it alone :)
