Part of the Kelly Gang - John, Kathy, Judy and Lynette after arriving in from Adelaide.
Lynette and Kathy's father was Australian and brother to Sue, John and Judy's Mum, and that's basically the tie-in.
And this time with Sue, less Kathy.
Some of the leftover debri - gosh they enjoy their red wine.
I split a ripe fig and a drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic, then popped in a wedge of blue cheese. A couple of minutes in the oven to melt the cheese and warm the fig, then I put on a little bit of rocket with a slice of proscuitto and another drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduced to a sticky syrup. It was yummo.The Entree - extremely yummy.
Chermoula chicken with orange cous cous, a sweet chilli and yoghurt sauce and minted, honeyed carrots.
Then I made a "mangomisu". Think tiramisu without the coffee and coffee liqueur, and substitute mango and Cointreau. Fresh and nice.

It has been fabulous to meet and spend some time with our American cousins. The only sad thing is that we have just met them and they're flying home again. I guess it must be my turn to go there next. They're from Virginia Beach which sounds like a nice part of the world...and Kathy has offered to meet me in New York...mmm...sounds good.
