It was cold here last night. A freezing wind blew all day which hurt your ears and your lungs. In the evening the drizzle came in and settled for the night quietly tapping away on the tin roof.
We had some friends over for dinner for a long overdue catch up.
Thankfully it was warm inside.
The girls went to bed early. No kids. Just adults.
I made a slow cooked lamb shoulder with some roast potatoes, salsa verde and a simple rocket & Parmesan salad. It was simple and delicious if I don’t mind saying so myself.
Our friends bought dessert – which helps when you run an organic fruit bottling company.
Pears in honey. Paw paws.
With some vanilla bean yoghurt? Yes please.
Some of my left over American treats.
Some cheese. Some (OK probably too much) wine. Sharing a meal you’ve lovingly prepared with good company and good food and wine makes me very happy.
And after we had done the clean up a natter with my husband by the fire until 1.30am. A perfect night at home.
