Portrait of a dinner party with very close friends

The hostess.

The conversation. 

                                                                       The kitchen.

                                                                            The light.

                                                                       More light.

                                                                  The tired gardener.

                                                                         The poet.

                                                                    The boyfriend.

                                                            The place.

Homemade Desserts this spring

 Milk Chocolate Mouse with Port Ganache and Whipped Creme Fraiche for 6. Made by Jerry with table setting by Jan..
 Strawberry Custard Pie for a pot luck. Made by Jerry, with strawberry layout by Karin.
 Home grown Strawberry Rhubarb Pie for two as it turns out over several days. Made by Karin.
Every few days lately we've been harvesting one or two colanders of strawberries from the front yard.  They are sweet and ambrosic.

Dessert at a dinner party

This is most likely Jerry's most magnificent dessert to date.
