It all began a few years ago when I met dear Mary, who was a reader for lunch. We really hit it off and a couple of months later she hosted a lovely luncheon at her home and introduced me to her neighbors, the Sudbury Sweethearts. That day I met Laurie and she was kind enough to ask me to a sensational luncheon at her stunning summer home on the Cape last November. You can read about it here. I had such a great time that I wanted to have them all over for lunch. By chance, my buddy Mo, of Mocadeaux was in town visiting so she was able to come too.
Thank goodness, the Mister was totally on board and had the menu written weeks in advance. My guests were lucky - if I had been in charge, the main course would have been peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
What can I say?
The guy's a gift for cheeseboards.
Since I'm watching my waistline, I decided to skip the salad and just eat the croutons.
OK, back to the food...
The entire meal was less than 200 calories.
OK, that isn't true, either.
