We did change things up with our regular Saturday meal by having my parents over for dinner. I realised how much I missed having people over for a relaxed meal, how much I missed party planning. Each time we have people over, I am always glad we did it but it truly warrants serious bed rest. Now if I am tired, imagine how much more drained my helper must be.
Guacamole, salsa, foie gras with toasted baguette
We kept the starters simple and these are recipes that you can easily Google for. Taste as you make them. You like them chunky, make them chunky. You like theme garlicky, make them garlicky. Free and easy, Susie. Who's Susie? No idea, just thought it rhymes with easy.
I had second thoughts about there being enough food and KW made a run for 车老板's roasted duck. We definitely had enough food to begin with but the roasted duck was dependably good.
The main dish was a Greek Yogurt Mustard Lamb based on Donal Skehan's Butterflied Lamb recipe plus 3 generous spoonfuls of mustard Dijon. It lay on a bed of pea hummus, based on this recipe, which was a fancy name for mashed peas.
Hope you had a good Father's Day weekend.
