Skipping class

Iris (15 May 2010)

Yesterday being my saint's day (Feast of SS Peter and Paul), Bill invited me over for dinner. Ah, the dilemma: Italian class or a meal cooked by Bill? Bill's cooking won.

It was a stunningly beautiful evening for sitting in the garden sipping Cabernet and eating Amish Gorgonzola on crackers. Perfect temperature, scattered clouds in a radiant blue sky. We had prosciutto and melon. Bill grilled steaks, corn, red peppers, and zucchini. It all ended with cherries jubilee made with sour cherries harvested from his orchard. A stellar meal and a lovely way to enjoy a summer evening.

I am sure I can catch up on Italian.

Smart choice!
Life is too short to ever pass up a meal with Bill!

A meal at Bill's take precedence over dinner at the White House.
