Lunch With Jeanie and Rick!

Here we are in my living room: me and Jeanie, blogger of The Marmelade Gypsy!
We had a fun afternoon together -- including Rick and Len. At lunch we tasted sesame-semolina bread made by Rick, pain de campagne by Len, and a miche (large sourdough loaf) from Zingerman's bakehouse. They were all fabulous. To go with the bread, we had cheese, chutney, butter, jam, salads, and madeleines that Jeanie made.

Jeanie's Madeleines were delicious.
Ready for lunch: chicken salad, cheese platter, and more on a sunny Sunday.
Grated carrot salad with lemon, cilantro, cumin.


Somehow I didn't get photos of the three lovely breads, which we all found just delicious! After lunch we sat around and talked and listened to CDs and LPs. We all have so much to discuss! Len and I were delighted that Jeanie and Rick could come from Lansing to visit us.

It was indeed one of the best days and we both had the best time with our fantastic hosts. Mae, I'm going to have to get that carrot salad recipe -- the proportions of seasonings was perfect! And hats off to the breadmakers! So good with both the jams and cheese and perfect with the chicken salad. It couldn't have been a better day!
