Last night we held a dinner party attended by Melissa and her new boyfriend George and Glyn and Charlotte (who works with Pete).I cooked Lasagne from scratch - a meat one for 4 of us and a vegetarian one (without garlic) for Melissa. As George is potentially the fussiest eater on the planet, I made him a rather plain chicken breast. I had intended making my paprika chicken, but he wouldn't like that and then thought about onions, peppers and some white wine, but guess what?!
I also made a huge rustic loaf of bread, which turned out great - you know how bread making is not an exact science and the results are always variable.
The guests brought desert and Melissa purchased a box of "jelly willies" to put on the cheesecake for some reason (see picture). Strange people!
Now the cleaning up must begin.
