however, when we have company for dinner, it is a given.
Our house guest is not on Weight Watchers but she ate and enjoyed a low point count dessert.
Whether she knew it was a WW friendly choice or not I am not sure.
I try not to inundate our guests with my eating regime rules or point counts!
Angel food cake and fresh fruit was served with a choice of whipped cream or yogurt.
It was a refreshing seasonal option especially with all the fresh fruits currently available in the grocery shops.
We discussed desserts and dinner party menus and L shared her easy peasy dessert recipe with me.
I think it is a keeper so I am sharing it with you.
Beat 3 egg yolks with 1/4 cup of sugar until blended and set aside.
Whip 1 cup of whipping cream and add 1/4 cup of any liqueur
Fold the egg mixture and the cream together and put into serving size ramekins.
Freeze until just before serving.
I picked some flowers and snuck them inside The Humble Bungalow when the cats were snoozing...
arranged and placed in the main bathroom and guest suite downstairs.
Flowers, Perrier, scents and light reading are stocked and ready for our guests.
The bed is comfy and the room quiet.
The downstairs bathroom has shampoo, cream rinse, razors, Q-Tips, cotton balls, toothpaste, toothbrushes, fresh white towels and a spare bathrobe.
My friend L and I walked each day and chatted while sipping wine before dinner.
We went for massage at Silk Road Spa and followed up the pampering with a healthy lunch at Rebar.
She helped me choose some new frames for prescription sunglasses.
They are Maui Jim sunnies, not the Ray Ban Wayfarer's that I had been considering.
Jacob's Coat rose growing by the back door...
the vintage Parisian table and chair where I sit with a mug of tea or a bottle of water when it is
time to relax a bit and soak in the beauty and sounds of the birds and the bees as they go about their business in the Humble Bungalow Garden.
I've been busy catching up on domestics.
I washed the wood floor in the kitchen on my hands and knees as that's the only way to really get the job done.
The floor is over 100 years old ~ it's dull, scratched and dented ~ it looks so much better when it's clean!
Janet at The Gardener's Cottage has a clean floor and she shares her recipe so you might want to pop over and check it out, she's lovely.
Hope that you are taking care of you and yours...
until next time when we meet up again here on this blog.
