Dinner at Our House 1 of 3
March 17, 2018, Saturday
We have been trying to arrange a dinner here for a few weeks, First I had a cold/cough for about 8 weeks. At some point Cathy (Catherine Murphy) caught it. After rescheduling it seemed as if we were both over it and so Tom and Joyce could come to dinner. Tom has been ill so could not take a chance of getting a cold. We had also invited Eve and John and they were not that keen to possibly get colds as well. The day before Joyce called to see if Casimir could also be invited as he was coming up to visit them. Of course we said yes. In addition to Cas being an asset to any gathering we are very fond of him. For a few days Eve wasn't sure if the 17th would work for her because she was scheduled to go to CA. We would have rescheduled again but it turned out her knee was bothering her and she did not want to fly. I picked Eve and John up at the train station at close to 3:00PM. I needed to get a couple o things at Adams Fairacre Farms so I brought them with me. A bit after we got here we all settled on the porch for cheese and fruit and chicken Liver Mouse (from Raven and Boar Farm). At some point Eve left to take a walk. Tom, Joyce ands got here at 5:30PM. We put out, Tuna Tartar and rice crackers in the kitchen and also grazed on the food on the porch. For dinner we served, Brussel Sprout Salad, Monk Fish & Artichokes with Polenta (we usually make instant polenta but Cathy wanted to try the slow cooked kind, which we hadn't had for quite a while. It really made a difference in how much better it was). For dessert we had Cara Cara Oranges in Caramel and Almond Crescent Cookies. (see next two enties)
