We invited two other couples to come to dinner at our house. We have always enjoyed having people sit around our table, eat and drink, and have a conversation. For the last couple of years, for obvious reasons, we've mostly had only small groups or we have entertained outdoors. So we had fun doing this.
|Len baked two types of French bread. |
Left: a mixed rye-wheat bread called Meteil, traditional in Auvergne.
Right: Fougasse, a ladder-shaped olive bread from Provence.
|On the table: the Fougasse, with a bottle of olive oil to serve for dipping.|
|A mixed green salad with the Fougasse.|
|...with water and wine to drink.|
|Next course: turkey cutlets in sour-cream and mayonnaise, and an orange-almond salad.|
|Dessert: home-made chocolate chip cookies (one of the only things I know how to bake)|
served with some cut-up figs and peaches.
