a dinner party for two.


last week,
i decided to cook up something
truly delightful with all of our farmers' market finds.




on the menu:
locally raised organic lamb
sauteed kale with sultana raisins
crisp & creamy mini red potatoes
beet & feta salad
with local "old vines foch" red wine
 and apple crumble for dessert



paul took some pictures while i cooked,
including a few shots of the giant pile of sugar
i clumsily spilled on the floor
(pictures which won't be included here)
after realizing halfway through the proceedings
that i had forgotten all about dessert
and still had six apples to peel
and about four minutes to do it!




it got a little hectic after that, but
dinner turned out deliciously
with a thyme-infused lamb roast
perfectly surrounded by delightful flavors
all in harmony with one another.


with the leftover roast
i made lamb curry
(from scratch!)



it was one of the highlights of my culinary abilities,
and maybe one day soon
i'll have enough energy to do it again.
