We love having people over for food. It's our favourite thing. It makes us sit on our deck and look at our beautiful surrounds and appreciate it more than usual. We can relax knowing Romi can't run away or trash something or fall down a flight of stairs. Love that Marlo gets involved now and picks the flowers for the table and helps clear the plates at the end and even helps wash up. I love white tablecloths and white linen and everyone shoving food in and making noises when they taste it and making a mess and talking over each other and screaming and snorting and laughing.
We had slow cooked lamb with salsa verde. (YUM!!)
New York Times no knead bread, Pips speedy version. (I made the bread)
Soba noodle salad
A big Green salad
And dessert was raspberry chocolate brownies and apple cake, because not everyone likes chocolate for dessert. I am excited that I made two desserts and bread. I just don't know myself.
As you can see I took most of the photos without getting off my bum but they are all taken with my camera set on manual and I didn't edit them. I think they are a little dark.
I had one of those HUGE moments when someone clever related their experience to me of how unhelpful it was comparing themselves to really amazing professional photographers. You know when someone just makes a casual remark and your head just spins for days because I was doing the same and feeling like my photos were so average- and they are compared to professional photographers, but they aren't bad compared to my old photos. Ha!
