When we are with our family from Switzerland,
Food and wine are the foci of the day.
Preparing for the evening meal
Is our joy-filled version of play.
We plan and shop and try to see
If we can fix a meal so tasty and bright
That guests must take a picture of it
Before they can eat a single bite.
My son-in-law is an exquisite chef;
So, cooking a meal for him to eat
Is a summons that I rise to greet.
It’s a challenge that I love to meet.
I wait to see what André and DeDe say,
And I ask for sage and constructive advice.
Cooking is a hobby, a life-long endeavor,
And having a built-in expert is really nice!
Here you are, my blogging friends –
Enjoy a look at a few of our latest meals.
Maybe someday you can come to dine
And see how our Montana hospitality feels!
The rack of lamb with polenta and green beans I fixed last night.
André taught me how to fix it next time so all the “lollipops” are more evenly cooked.
The pork roast with mushroom cream sauce and potatoes au gratin and asparagus/sautéed almonds – – – mmmm – – – André fixed earlier this week. It was incredible!
Beef in a plum sauce with asparagus on cheesy potatoes –
garnished with parsley. Too pretty to eat!
DeDe and me happy to be in the kitchen together
Bob and André enjoying a relaxed visit between meals
A wine of choice for a meal out.
Another chef’s version of rack of lamb. Pretty, huh?
André – waiting for a meal in the beautiful area of Jackson Hole, WY
A dessert worth waiting for…
Another meal they had on their way to visit us. Mmmm… it’s called a Fire Roll. I love sushi. It’s my go-to meal when I have a chance to eat out. What is yours?
Loving One Another includes cooking and treating one another with food and hospitality, right? What’s your favorite meal to fix or eat at home?
Today is my TOPS day
(Take off pounds sensibly)
I think I’ll wait til my kids leave before I go back to weigh in.
Don’t you think that’s a good idea?
See you tomorrow
