Beautiful Steve!!

Here's our dinner. The rice pilaf turned out very nice too. Half cup of jasmine rice, half cup of orzo, browned in butter and oil. I added sliced shallots, chopped mushrooms to the saute', and then a handful of golden raisins, with two cups of rich chicken broth and one tablespoon of curry powder. Simmered for 15 min on low, fluffed, and added some slivered almonds to the mix. Very tasty.

I could put that away with ease, the balance is just right for me.
Ps we share the same taste in food, plates and work surfaces.

Kay another humdinger, very few people know how to make a good pilaf. IMO you nailed it and like SK the balance is spot on for me.
