We had our good neighbors over for dinner tonight – finally! These two are great fun. They ate a lot of the food and wine, which makes me happy. I told Jeremy the worst feeling for a hostess is when her guests don’t eat because she miscalculated the menu. I really plan a menu according to who is coming and how all of the dishes, the wine, and the dessert combine to make a complete fête. Which is why if you are picky, a vegetarian, are a complete food unsophisticate, or have various food restrictions – I have to like you an awful lot to invite you to dinner at my house. Forget about vegans, they will be really unhappy in my kitchen.
