Cooking!


Yesterday I wrote about things I wanted to cook. Today I did cook, along with Carol and Len. We made things in the spirit of our recent dining adventures in Israel. In the photo collage above, you can see bread, hummus, roasted eggplant with tomatoes, vegetable skewers on the grill, Carol's grape leaf pie (lower left), grilled chicken, lamb meatballs, and our strictly American dessert: rhubarb sauce served over ice cream. Carol's pie used grape leaves from her garden in her interpretation of an Ottolenghi contribution to the Splendid Table. 


Rhubarb sauce: one of the things I planned to make, and
now I've made it.

Now that's what I call a homemade spread, Mae! Good for you and your cooking "pals" for a delicious dining tribute:)

Thanks for sharing, Mae...

Yummy! What a great idea to get a group together to cook! I love it when my daughters visit and we all cook together. My son can cook, but prefers to let others cook for him when he has the chance!

I love his grape leaf pie. It is a winner.

Lovely! Especially the rhubarb sauce, for some reason I have a definite love for that tart stuff!

Oh Mae, what a lovely table -- and I mean that in every way -- the setting, the wonderful sounding food, the glory of sharing a meal in the company of friends and family. Beautiful in every way.
