For the evening I picked two David Austin Roses, my favourite
"Jude the Obscure" and some rosemary for the main dish.
I set a very simple table...
Tray of appies
Jamie Oliver's Succulent Lamb Stew
Green beans and shaved carrots
Chocolate torte with raspberry coulis
Brie cheese, balsamic fig spread, olives, cherry tomatoes, dates, & crackers.
Mixed in a big bowl
butter lettuce, radicchio, endive
Julia Child's basic vinaigrette drizzled over top and tossed.
Jamie Oliver's Succulent Lamb Stew can be found in his 5 Ingredient cookbook.
I borrowed a copy from our local library.
The chocolate torte was a packaged mix by Marlette
from the most recent delivery of "My Stylish French Box"
The chocolate torte mix was fast and easy.
Look at all the beautiful items that Sharon and her team chose for the last box!
The candle is fragrant and the copper tin will come in handy when it is finished.
(put the candle in the freezer for a few hours and the wax shrinks away from the sides and then I pop it out.

Love these carefully curated French themed boxes.
A wonderful treat filled with exquisite delights.
If you want to try one
or indulge in an annual subscription
The November box will be on its way shortly and I am really excited as heard that one of the items will be from the company Petrusse who make and design beautiful scarves and shawls!
Most of the contents are kept secret so that subscribers are surprised...
when all the boxes have been delivered
the team will share the box contents on the website.
I'm back in the kitchen today preparing a casual dinner for family who are visiting from the Kootenay region of our province.
So I must not dilly dally and put my apron on and start prepping!
Hope that your week is going well and that you are finding some time to stop and smell the flowers along the way!
