As is sometimes the case in this household, we observed a “rolling” birthday for Mary. There was a family dinner in Massachusetts on Saturday — cooked by Ben and Jen — which was lovely. Adding Thanksgiving dinner earlier, and a dinner party for a dear friend Sunday, by the time we got home, we thought that a quiet dinner would be just right. And it was — last evening.
White wine, crackers and Halvarti cheese
Whipped Vermont organic potatoes
Local organic pork tenderloin with apples and onions
Fresh frozen asparagus
Flourless chocolate cake (from Birchgrove)
Local organic mocha chip ice cream
VT Coffee decaf with Booth Bros. milk
After a few presents, we waddled off to relax and digest. Later on, neither of us needed a pre-bedtime snack.
