Such a long time since the last post,  and what a lot has happened.   Early September we had a young woman to stay,  she is the daughter of a very dear friend, and we loved having her visit.   M loves food, and is an excellent cook,  and while she didn’t get to do too much cooking with us,  she put together a lovely entree one evening.  No cooking required,  but the simplicity and depth of taste and texture is all you can wish for.
