A couple of nights ago, our dear friends who are living in Luxembourg were in town and we were able to put together a dinner party with a third family we've been friends with forever.
Katy requested a meal I made last summer to be repeated exactly the same as last time. She knows me well enough to know that I couldn't possibly do that ;). I made the same menu, but with a few additions.
The picture is of my plate of leftovers last night that I thought still looked pretty.
vegetables grilled with garlic, ginger and chiles
Our friends brought a fantastic shortcake scone affair with homemade vanilla ice cream and blueberries.
The food aside, we had beautiful weather, five relatively well behaved kids and all in all a lovely time catching up on the patio. We miss these guys and it went by too fast.
