Tonight we had the perfect excuse to use the placemats I've been making - visitors!
My friend Stacy came up from Boston to stay for a few days and today was her last day. Her hubby came up today too, so what better excuse to have a yummy dinner and use the placemats?!
Since it's her birthday next week I also made a Pavlova and we sang to her and then got a good sugar high from the Pavlova. (This looks like a very similar recipe to mine here. I doubled mine, using 8 egg whites etc)
As you can see, there is some left...any takers?!
Stacy is the best kind of guest - the kind that you don't have to entertain or serve, or make grand elaborate plans for. We just hung out together and had secret little 'dates' each night to Dairy Queen for blizzards once the kids were in bed. It doesn't get much better than that!
