Alisa Alexander (former student…now friend) came over last night and cooked us a DELICIOUS and lovely meal.  Alisa is half Thai and the meal included spring rolls with her Mom’s peanut sauce and some yummy corn relish…Here’s how it went:

the dessert was blood orange sorbet with a chiffonade of mint and some berries

we sat on the deck enjoying the garden and the leafy green canopy above, little realizing this would be our last evening to do so…to be continued…
