Last night our old and dear friend Colleen came over for food, something to drink and much conversation. Diane and I each made a dish and just purchased the food for the other two; Colleen brought the dessert.
We started with Diane’s Prawn Cocktail: a small bowl each with four prawns—delicious (the 70s returns!) The next dish was my version of Oysters Rockefeller which is a strange dish made with herbs, bread crumbs and butter mashed together, spooned over the oysters and then slipped under the grill. The next dish was just a piece of store bought pate with some small toasts and that was followed by a plate of anti-pasto: prosciutto, black and green olives and pickled mushrooms—simple yet delicious.
Following this meal we had the pastries that Colleen had brought accompanied by a domestic bottle of sparkling.
