Glorious pink rose blooming in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Pretty pink shade and an intoxicating fragrance...
It has been a lovely weekend with friends and family.
We enjoyed having our dear friends from France visit
we spent hours chatting and catching up....
There was an abundance of food and the wine flowed.
Beef Daube with a baguette followed by a green salad and rhubarb crisp for dinner the night that they arrived.
Tapas following a cruise up the Gorge waterway on the Harbour ferry on Saturday
then dinner out at a French Bistro.
We met our children and grand children for brunch on Sunday
so our friends could reacquaint themselves with Isla and Henry and meet Mira.
After brunch we drove out to the Marina and took our Sea Ray out for a scenic cruise off the Sidney waterfront.
I have a fridge full of food and will not need to cook for a couple of days!
You can see how much food played a major role in our weekend!
I refuse to step on the scale today.
I do not want a shock.
We enjoyed a cocktails on the deck of The Humble Bungalow
The weather cooperated, the sun shone and there was only a hint of a breeze...
We hosted a casual dinner party and invited a long time friend of our house guests.
The menu was simple and tasty.
veggies skewers with goat cheese in balsamic creme
grilled lamb chops
a dollop of lemon and dollop of mango sorbet
served with a square a locally made chocolate for dessert.
A reader asked me to post some of my meals and this one is easy quick and tasty.
My plate has a healthy portion of vegetables
1/2 cup rice
small pork chop in a mustard marmalade glaze.
Brown chops in oil and butter.
Cook until no longer pink and remove from pan, cover with foil.
De-glaze pan with orange juice
stir in grainy mustard
add thyme and Worchestershire sauce and blend.
Add chops back into mixture and cook a few more minutes.
Domestic jobs await...
and they will not get done if I keep typing!
