Our dinner group met for a lovely summer evening recently. The menu theme was Thai inspired food and was delicious. Along with the fun of regular socializing with a group of good friends, the pleasure of trying new recipes can’t be beat. Our dinner group gatherings have forced me to try new recipes and dishes that are completely different from my regular, go-to meals.
The menu consisted of appetizers, lettuce wraps, and dessert. The wraps were made from red-leaf lettuce with lots of vegetables and sauces. The grilled chicken had a wonderful turmeric flavor.
The weather was agreeable and we enjoyed an evening fire in a re-purposed wheel-barrow. The wheel barrow (whose name is Lil’ Rusty) used to be ours but we passed it on when we acquired a “new” and improved model for ourselves. Our “new” model came from a garage sale, of course. The wheel barrow had been lined with fire bricks before using as a camp-fire vessel.
A very lovely evening. Friends, food, fun, and frugal entertaining – very Go Gingham!
