Mr. Tom and I got to go to a little dinner party that my sister hosted, in her garden.
She's a wonderful hostess and spoils us royally.
We had artichoke and tomato bread puffs for a starter.
Then, she lavished us with a selection of gourmet cheeses from the new wine and cheese shop in town.
Then, for the main course, we had:
~ roast chicken with bread, plum and herb stuffing and a white wine gravy.
~ roasted rosemary new potatoes.
~ string beans from her garden
~ salad with blueberries and goat cheese with a poppy seed dressing.
It was simple and wonderfully flavorful goodness! All this to the enveloping sound of the crickets.
(I do love those crickets!!!)
Then, it started to rain and we moved inside.
Inside, where we had chocolate raspberry coffee and panna cotta with blueberries and strawberries.
The sights and sounds were soft and gentle and, oh, so pleasant. They still fill my mind - even now.
Thank you, Suzy!

P.S. Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words in regards to my new blog, Katy Noelle's Photo Journal. I was so nervous to let anyone even know about it. I needed the encouragement of my friends and I got it! I am so grateful.
Love, Me xxo
