  • It all depends on how you say it!

    We are having a dinner party tomorrow night…….
    My hubby asked what I am planning, I usually just say ‘Food’ as I like to surprise so I said

    The menu is soup, chicken & veg, dessert, tea/coffee
    Sounds like a school dinner - Boring huh!
    He knows I love cooking so he wasn’t convinced but here is the menu all dressed up……….

    Homemade butternut soup topped with crème fraiche and chives

    Grilled chicken in orange juice with roast potatoes, honey glazed carrots, garlic mushrooms and peas

    Meringues with strawberry yoghurt, fresh strawberries topped with vanilla sugar and grated chocolate

    10 types of tea and 4 varieties of coffee on offer.

    Of course lashings of wine, good conversation and 2 scatty cats for entertainment but that goes without saying

    Does that make it sound more interesting?

      What makes it sound even more interesting is that YOU will be cocoking it (instead of me!).. I like cooking, but it is always a great treat to have someone else turn out a nice meal!

      Sadly I will be kipping tomorrow night, in preparation for a long drive to France.. or I would gatecrash!! he ehheeheheheh!

        I like the surprise of the 'school dinner' menu myself I'm not a fan of pretentious-sounding recipe descriptions!

              It sounds delicious. Not sure you should have have told us, though, it looks like we'll all be turning up.

                    Of course you are all welcome! Please be here for 8pm or else the soup will get cold!
                    Nut and wheat allergies have been catered for! Chicken is from responsibly farmed sources, veggies, spuds and strawbs from UK, Devon clotted cream yoghurt...... have I covered all the 'PC' bases? Probably not! Although I had to go further afield for wine as I don't even know if there is such a thing as British wine?

                    Thanks for the comments - I was aiming for 'oooh that sounds delish!' rather than pretentious (ouch) sounding morsels that wont fill a fly.

                        I didn't know that - will have to try them (any excuse to try some wine) as for catering for 3 week old babies? Yes of course - solved by inviting their mum who provides exactly as nature intended
