We had some friends over for dinner, a bit tight, and a bit hot but the company and conversation made up for that. Kirk, Anne, Lamont and Laura.
Lamont rode up Mount Ventoux the other day. No big deal for him as he does it nearly every time he comes to France. Imagine riding up Mount Ventoux without effort? Think of all the gnocchi you could eat afterwards! Yes, that is how my mind works.
I have seen Laura and Lamont several times, I do believe they come to France every year for several weeks.
They are so :very kind, when I imagine them they are as they are: ALWAYS SMILING. I love that about them. Happy folk! This year they stayed in our house next door. Neighbors in real time.
The other night for dinner everyone brought something for the aperitif: Asparagus souffle from Cassis, Stuffed peppers, Bouchon and ash covered cheese, pesto, sun dried tomato dips, olives of course...
After we had stuffed pesto gnocchi, with confit tomatoes, I drizzled pumpkin seed oil over it... Mount Ventoux here I came.
I won't mention dessert...
