And I'm probably the only person in the vicinity who's enjoying it.
Apart from the frogs and other aquatic and amphibious critters outside.
It rained last night and we had a change in venue for Tapas, and since it is also Easter weekend, we also had a lower than usual turnout last night, but that's OK, I still had fun. Not the cleaning the house part, but the cooking part, and also the entertaining bit, and getting to visit with all kinds of people.
I love the rain, it makes me want to grab a stock pot and start making soup. Actually that's just what one of our guests did. She was my co-host this month and she made an incredible Minestrone soup.
There was this great Seafood dip (which I kept dipping into...) My friend makes this, and the first time I tried it, I fell in love with the taste. It uses Alfredo Sauce, and shrimp and I'm not too sure what else, but it tastes wonderful.
These are deep fried dough bites, and for the life of me I cannot remember the name. They were good.
No-Knead Rolls and served them alongside some of my Home Made Butter. And also made some of my Seeded Crackers.
I also had fun making some Tomato Tulips... I'll be detailing how I did that in another post.
Mushroom and Garlic dish with Capers, well I like it well enough, I made it again last night.
There were Cupcakes, look at how cute they were decorated. One of our guests last night was celebrating a birthday so I stuck a candle in the middle of one of the yellow flowered cupcakes and we all sung Happy Birthday to her.
That's it for this month, I had fun.
And now the clean up begins. Just kidding, all I have to do is wash a few wine glasses and think back on the conversations I had and then I'm going to sit on the couch and enjoy the rain.
So long as it stays outside.
