Dinner Party

On Friday, we hosted dinner with our houseguests, Chris and Tony from California, and neighbors, Janet and David from England. Here we are enjoying apéritifs (before dinner drinks):

L to R: Chris, Janet, David, Tony's back, Ken.
Tony, Chris, Janet.
Then it was time to eat. First, the appetizer of thinly sliced black radish with mimolette cheese, a light vinaigrette dressing and fresh chervil:

Dinner is served (coq au vin, boiled potatoes)! Followed by green salad, cheeses, and two scrumptious desserts that Janet made (a bread pudding and a chocolate fudge-like confection). L to R: Janet, David, Ken, Chris, Tony.

We stopped taking pictures as the first course was being served and concentrated on eating. Saturday night, Chris and Tony stayed with Collette while Ken and I went to a Julien Clerc concert in Tours. He did a bunch of old songs and we had a great time, although we didn't think to take the camera. Most people in the theater had their digital cameras out snapping photos the whole time.

  1. I don't know which we enjoyed more, the fine company or the fine food. How appropriate that you got a photo of us all laughing, no doubt at one of David's witty comments. Thanks again for a great evening.-- Chris and Tony
