Dinner Was Delicious~
I knew it would be..it won a prize:)
And I know the wonderful young woman who submitted the prize-winning recipe..
A few years ago..I met a great family.. so nice.. and genuine..they have a beautiful little girl also..now.. not so little..growing up so fast like my little grandsons..
One day at their home.. ..I was served the best lemon loaf in the world.. and she shared the recipe with me..It was her grandmother's.. we had tea.. and everything was served on a beautiful tablecloth..April Cornell..I think..
I have continued to make it ever since and have thought of her ever since..in many different ways..under many different circumstances..and even for no reason at all..
One time her husband went to Paris and brought me back a perfect little French loaf pan for my loaves:)
They have moved back to the USA now..and we have kept in touch.. I am so happy about that..I learned things from her..important things~
recently she offered me a magazine..and sent me the issue personally..with a sweet note and a mention of checking out ..page 100..humbly..because that is how she is..
In a matter of days this great little magazine arrived.. and page 100 was a keeper:)
It's a delicious marinated chicken..served with a home made tzaziki sauce and pita..I used warm Naan(Nana bread here..in my mind..) bread..and I let my chicken marinate during the day:)
It was warm Monday and the dish was perfect for the weather~
It's exciting for me to have the magazine..and the published chef's recipe here..
I remember once..going in her beautiful little girl's bedroom and there were fresh flowers there.
Not in the living room.. in her daughter's room:) Just for her..
That's how she is.Unique,warm,smart and kind..
Did I mention I fell in love with some photographs in their home? That's right..she had taken them.
You would all love them.
You can find the whole recipe ..
I know I am early with this post.it should be Thursday..But I just couldn't wait~
