Last Weekend

On Saturday I met up with my friend T and Quilting Newbie. Together we are all part of a Round Robbin Quilting group. To participate, you make you own centre square and then each month your square is passed along to another member in the group to add borders of varying width. This was our 3rd border of 5 inches. I added all the blue coloured fabrics.

ROUND ROBBIN

On Sunday I felt like having a nice Greek dinner so I invited my friends T and J over (you met them previously) along with my girlfriend M and of course my Big Man and dog.

PARTY SNACKS

We started off with some drinks, red pepper hummus, pita, crackers, olives and nuts. For dinner we had homemade BBQ'd Pork Souvlaki, Tzatziki and Greek Style Potatoes.

GREEK STYLE POTATOES

These potatoes are SO GOOD. I found the recipe a few years ago on "All Recipes". I used fresh Thyme and Rosemary snipped from my herb garden. I suggest making enough so you have enough leftovers to fry up in the morning for breakkie!

Greek Potatoes

For desert I wanted something nice, light and easy to prepare. I had bought some Ontario peaches from the Brooklin Farmers Market the day before. I thought they would be nice grilled on the BBQ.

GRILLED PEACHES

I served each bowl with two peach halves and a splash of Icewine. I think they turned out really tasty and were the perfect end to a fun afternoon with friends.

A LITTLE SHOT ON THE SIDE AS WELL

CITRONELLA LAMP

Mosquitoes were out in full force, not sure if these lamps actually work or not but they sure do add a nice ambiance to the night sky. The bug spray was passed around like a fine cologne.

Roses

ROSES FROM M.

M gave us lovely flowers and wine; while J and T brought along a fantastic bottle of wine from their collection brought back from their last trip out to British Columbia.

Smooches and Thanks to all of you for a fantastic Sunday Supper.
