Yesterday was our last Sunday lunch at my sister’s house, before we leave to go back to our house in Florida for six months. My brother-in-law is a fantastic cook, and this time, we were treated to slow roasted beef fillet,
together with lamb curry, an assortment of roast vegetables, and my favourite mushroom sauce.
My mom, being the eldest, always gets to help herself first. As she was walking back to her place at the table, a voice piped up, “Are you sure you have enough food there?” Of course, we all turned to look at her plate, which was full almost to overflowing. For such a tiny person, she sure has a good appetite. It all went down really well, together with good wine, and between the nine of us, there was lots of conversation and laughter.
I’m really going to miss these delicious occasions, but I suppose the time will fly by, as it is wont to do, and we’ll soon be back again.
I guess they’ll miss my decadent desserts whilst we’re away. Don’t even ask how many calories in this chocolate cheesecake.
Whilst all this was going on, Dingo took the opportunity to grab a bit of solitude, and slept in the sun, undisturbed.
Hope you all had a great weekend too.
