We invited a couple to come over for dinner at our house instead of bringing them to a restaurant.
I went to Farmers Market to grab some fruits, fresh mushrooms, seafood for tonight’s dinner at home (May 16).
It should have been a ten-minute ride from the market to our house but it took 40. At 2 pm it should’nt t be this bad because it was not yet rush hour. Every hour is now rush.
Prices of flowers are high even if it’s not Valentines Day. I bought a few dozens to spruce up our tables.
I was thinking of using the blue and white Herend plates for this special occasion.
I decided to use these Lenox plates instead. We’ve only used them once during our 30th wedding anniversary private dinner on our rooftop. They are understated but nice also.
I have a feeling I am losing some pieces kasi parang kumonti yung quantity. Dati punung-puno yung shelves int he auxiliary kitchen, ngayon halos bakante na.
I cooked mushroom soup. I bought a pack of fresh portobello mushrooms from Farmers Market, nung nalito ang bangu-bango. I also put three table spoons of black truffles. Dyos mio ang bangu-bango and ang sarap! #trufflesaddict
While I was busy in the kitchen, Stella watched and followed me.
She looks madungis but she’s clean, most of the time.
I actually wasn’t sure if our guests would like the food. I didn’t know whether to serve Pilipino dishes, I played safe. They are French-Canadians so we got them cheese.
At least if they didn’t like the main courses, they would for sure eat the cheese.
I bought this vintage porcelain bowl from an antique shop in St. Andrews for P 360 equivalent. Mura ano? It was actually a donation to charity and not the actual price of the item. All proceeds of the sale were donated to charity. That was the main reason why I took this kahit mahirap iuwi kasi bulky and heavy.
