Saying Thank You

My love of and lack of opportunity these days to throw dinner parties inspired a Saturday night Thank You meal for a generous and very clever fellow.


Ingredients from the garden and goodies from an early morning jaunt to my new favourite place combined with a full day in the kitchen resulted in a small banquet....Moroccan style.


The menu....
Fresh grapes, dates, feta stuffed olives, cinnamon almonds and baba ganoush.
Lemon chicken with my own lemons; spiced beetroot salad; cous cous with almonds and currants; tomato, cucumber and capsicum salad, and broad beans.

And for dessert.... honey almond pastries; cinnamon oranges, and Turkish delight.

My fridge still has a bouquet of orange blossom water.....divine.
