Dinner with Lovely Friends

 Last night we dined with dear friends Gail & Tom at their beautiful waterfront home where we had the pleasure of meeting
.. Rita Calvert .. 
author of
the Grassfed gourmet - FIRES IT UP!
 Bourbon Rib Eye Steaks Flamande
Rita gave a short demo and talk on the natural virtues of grassfed beef.   
We couldn't wait to sample this perfectly cooked steak! 
Each couple received this pamphlet and a signed copy of Rita's book!
 Rita and I at the dinner table enjoying food, wine, and great conversation. 
 Gail's lovely table-scape.

 Gail's kitchen area opens into the living room.
 Gail and Rita created this beautiful tart using no set recipe.
 Needless to say, it was out of this world good.  I have a feeling Gail will use this recipe in a future issue of the Carefree Cooking Magazine.
 Wilson made his Kentucky Corn Pudding recipe as a side dish.
 I made mini-cheesecakes with fresh fruit and spun sugar accents.
 A toast to our hosts Gail & Tom
who entice us with excellent food, creativity, and beautiful surrounding.
 No need to worry about the calories since they're small!

A good time was had by all as the evening comes to an end.
Thank you Gail & Tom for a simply delightful dinner party and the added surprise of having Rita personally sign her book for us ...
