A lovely meal and dinner party

Last Thursday we have a lovely
dinner party with our good friends and
Mr. Husband's parents.
*
Tricks to serving included having warm food covered
until the last minute.
*
I love using the blue and white dishes
and mis-matching them!



Meal:

My friend's delicious leek soup.
I must get the recipe!!!
Also...
Drunken chicken recipe for the roast chicken ~ 
this was done in my large crock pot for 7 hours on low
and then in the oven at 425F for 30 minutes.
Carrots cooked in slow cooker under the chicken.
Gravy made with butter, flour and juice from crock pot.
Also raw carrots, basmati rice &
a green salad with goat cheese and cranraisens.








It was a lovely meal!


I just love the soup tureen for serving!




Apricot Torte for dessert with
french vanilla ice cream and vanilla bean gelato.

It was a lovely time of eating a great meal,
