Hello all hope this long weekend finds everyone in good health and you are all having fun! We are going our family's annual ladies day celebration today. It's always a lot of fun with LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of food, not just food, exceptionally good food. It's a pot luck, everyone brings their favourite dish or a new discovery and we feast all day long! The theme today is black and white so we are to dress in black and white a combination of either or monochromatic apparently our colourful personalities will be enough colour for the day! I had made something prior to knowing the theme that was quite colourful but will not be wearing it today, I ended up making a pair of white leggings and will be wearing those with a black and white top!
So we spent the day cooking with my daughter yesterday, she is bringing a zucchini quiche made with real creme fraiche, cheese, whipping cream and milk. I am bringing two boned chickens stuffed with rice and ground meat mixture cooked with cognac, herbs, cheese and bacon, no calories in either of these dishes!!!
At last count there are going to be 36 in attendance, yup you read right, 36 wonderful ladies! We had to limit the party to first cousins or there would be many more, it's a very large family. There will probably be enough food for 136 :)
