Our Lucia Day dinner didn't happen on Dec. 13th, due to weather, but we rescheduled for Dec. 16th. Icy streets daunted one guest, one was felled by illness, Tom fetched two more, and another couple were able to make it on their own. The six of us had a great time! We started early - 3:00- so part of the travel could be done in daylight. We ate hors d' oeuvres, drank hot spiced cider and talked - we always have plenty to say!. At 5:00 we served a dinner of cedar planked, grilled salmon with lovely pot luck accompaniments. The finale was Tom's hazelnut torte. Everyone made it home safely. We are thankful for good friends who helped me make this celebration happen.

We have a lot of snow up here. We are at the snow line N and E of stanwood. The snow in the yard is up to my knees and I am homebound with two grandboys (8 & 10) and Kylee and her girlfriend. It is warmer though but it has been snowing all day. The deck railing has snow measuring 14 inches. Isn't it funny how certain places didn't get snow--like where you are I suppose. MB
Wow, I'm impressed! Thanks for sharing the pictures.ReplyDelete
Linda..I'm glad that you were able to have your dinner party, but sorry about the weather and illness that kept some guests away. But it looks like it was a wonderful time..ReplyDelete
Holy Smokes! What a dessert! Could it possibly taste as good as it looks?? The table is lovely!ReplyDelete
I think I'd have hopped a plane to share an evening like that. Of course, it's also nice sitting here dreamily sighing and thinking about trying to put something together for my good friends that would be that enjoyable.
Your table looks totally spectacular. Everybody must have been oohing and ahhing over it. I'm glad everybody had a good and safe time. That dessert is too too incredible. I didn't know you were married to a chef!ReplyDelete
