Looking good Pac

My husband brought home some smoked wild pig (boar?) that a friend of his who hunts gave him for the holidays. We're frying that up with some onions and eating it with rice and a salad. Saute'd up with some onions this will make a carnivore's eyes roll up in his head.

The tail? A little over 1/2lb. The steak? Enough for today's lunch, too

Thanks Kylie.

I used to use a serving platter, Vit!

Thanks Taxy. It felt good to go to town on a dinner. Hard to believe I lost my passion for cooking there for a while.

Pac, my grandparents gave my Mom (who loved to entertain and did all the family feasts) 12 large plates one year for Christmas. They were beautiful and huge...it turned out they were round serving plates. She used them for dinner that day and was found by my Dad in the kitchen crying her eyes out after. When he asked her why she said her dinner must have been horrible because only Uncle Clark (who usually had thirds) went back for a second helping and a few left food on their plates. My Dad said "didn't you see how they filled their plates? We are all stuffed - look at all the food that is gone!" Her eyes lit up and after that there was always a warning on the size of the plate.

You just reminded me of that happy memory, which I needed. Thanks

And by the way, your dinner did look extra YUM!

We had quite a few toasts with supper last night, starting with the traditional Danish one when one has guests, "Skol og velkommen!"

My first Solstice dinner party was last night. We had a rolled pork roast with brown basmati rice, a "spring greens medley" salad with Garlic Dressing of Doom (and a vinaigrette for the lactose intolerant guest), and rødkål. Served it with Henkel and Royale de Neuville. Trifle for dessert.

Your poor mother
That must have really had her wondering.

And thanks
