Spring time. Good friends. Impromptu dinner out of doors.
I made one of my favorites, long-simmered lamb and cauliflower stew.
Jodi brought some kale and garlic that we sauteed with nama shoyu and a little green tea oil. A salad was tossed with a nettle pesto vinaigrette I whipped up along with a giant patch of pesto last week.
Anouk brought a great Italian red, Il Trullo from the Co-op in Ashland. I was inspired to make this peanut and cabbage slaw.
Jodi still isn’t eating chocolate which inspired me to find these really neat rye crumble bars which were filled with last summers Italian prune plum conserve. Altogether a lovely evening.
