Dinner For Five At Six.

The standard Tuesday marketing meeting. Odd to think that they didn’t have these weekly meetings until I started consulting for them almost a year and a half ago. Wow, I guess it has been that long!

Dinner tonight is for five people at 6pm… though Jonathan showed up at 3:30 and Jeff more like 5:30, and Mark was already here working on getting the SOB wiring finished which he did so now I can switch easily between shore power, generator power or inverter power… and get the batteries charged as well. Kevin was the last to show, just as I was about to put the steaks on.

Menu:

  • Salad
  • Roasted Root Vegetables
  • Fresh Baked Herb Challah
  • Rib Steaks
  • Wine
  • Homemade (by me) Five Spice Short Bread Cookies Served With A Late Bottled 1991 Vintage Port.

Yum. And those short bread cookies — pressed into the chocolate molds that I got at a flew (or as Swanda says, flea) market in Brussels:

Makes me wish I’d gotten more of those moulds but it was at the beginning of a several week trip. Oh well. Coulda woulda shoulda.

    Yummy! Why, you cookie-maker, you! Have to give you a wonderful recipe from ‘Jasper White’s Cooking from New England’ that Pucci gave me at my grad school graduation party. They are a lot like my Grandma Julian’s…
