Dinner with Friends

Mary Jo

On Monday, a very cold and rainy night, Natalie invited me over for dinner, along with Darcy and Mary Jo. Mary Jo is traveling to Brazil and beyond for the holidays, so this was our last chance to see her for awhile. We missed our other KnitGrrlz, Carla, Brit and Lori, who are all in other locales for now.


Cold and rainy...yes. Chefette Natalie warmed us all up with yummy snacks and wine. Her table setting was simple, yet beautiful.

She baked a wonderful savory bread and served it with a salad made from fennel and other goodies.
Fennel Salad w/Parmesean, Pomegranate Seeds, Oranges

Natalie served a flavorful and hearty chicken in the pot (Poule au Pot) for the main course....Yummmm!!

Fruited Chicken with Red Potatoes, Vegies

Darcy's Potato Chip and Pecan Sandies
Apple Ambrosia

Darcy contributed her famous potato chip-pecan cookies for dessert, paired with apple ambrosia.
We laughed, talked and generally had a great time. We waited for the rain to subside and bid farewell and bon voyage to Mary Jo. I anxiously await her photos and travel stories on Facebook.
I love my friends!

Hostess with the Mostess, Ms. Natalie

By the way, Mary Jo was on the Channel 7 news last night. You can view the story here!
