|Every Friday, I bake something sweet for my youngest daughter's 'Food Friday.' I've been on a decadent, delightful discovery of new recipes.....it allows me to create things I can't eat myself....then they get lovingly packaged up and delivered to my daughter's door on Thursday evenings and she takes them into the vet hospital on Friday and they get devoured....and I get feedback....and I LOVE IT!|

So, I invited her, her husband, my middle daughter and her boyfriend to dinner on Saturday evening to celebrate.
The table getting set last evening prior to everyone's arrival....
I made broiled salmon, an Indian dish of chicken, potatoes, cilantro and a masala sauce with onions and lots of spice....I also made a french pea dish that was awesome....I will share the recipe for it at the end. I recently took a french cooking class and it was taught there.....I made several desserts as well.
|the banana on the table is a bit of a 'joke' as my middle daughter's boyfriend HATES bananas...|
|coffee, tea, and dessert after dinner....all smiles|
