We have had my Auntie and Uncle staying this week and tonight we had a couple of friends over for dinner. It’s late now and after three courses of food and far too much of the red stuff the house is quiet again.
I think dinner was a success: onion soup for starters, liver and bacon for mains followed by little fresh fruit tarts. All homedone and I think all OK.
I flap around the kitchen when we have guests, worried about the soup tasting too sweet, not doing enough veg and everything being done on time. I know that it all goes wrong if you try too hard but still I do it.
I was pleased with the tarts. I blind baked 14 cases using a sweet pastry base and filled 6 with a home made lemon curd and six with a custard base and fresh fruit on top. I will, once de-red-wined post a recipe.
Main course was prepared by the Wilf one as I cannot stand liver. I had a bit of rump steak as the only none believer. All in all a very nice evening.
