Every time we're invited to visit the Village Green, we're there! I love this National Historic Landmark. It's an oasis in the middle of the City. The shared park areas are serene and beautifully maintained.
Amy and Billy invited us to a going-away dinner party on Saturday for our friend, Dale. Dale is moving to South Carolina with his lady-friend, Jo. Jo was at the party, along with other L.A. friends, originally from South Carolina. Larry and I were the only native Californians in attendance. It was refreshing.

I brought dessert. Since our return from Louisiana, I'd been anxious to try a few of Chef Patrick Mould's recipes. On Saturday I made Chef's Chocolate Bread Pudding with Kahlua Cream Sauce. I substituted dark chocolate for Chef's white chocolate. Oh my! It was rich and delicious.

We were a highly congenial group. Everyone laughed a lot, told stories and generally had a fantastic time. Every party at Amy's and Billy's house is comfortable, delicious and fun. Thanks for inviting us!
