My Private Chefs

Remember the wedding invitations I made? That wedding is coming up on Saturday! My nephew and his beautiful bride will tie the knot and we get to celebrate that while enjoying a de-facto family reunion (minus my much-missed sister in California).

My other sister drove up north with her husband for the whole week. I kidnapped them for a day and forced them to cook us a gourmet meal in my decidedly un-gourmet kitchen. And D got to enjoy it too when he got home from a long day at work.

It was pan seared chicken breast in a lime-chili dressing on a bed of mixed greens with mango, apple and peppers. Did I mention the fruit and cheese first course? I know you are saying, "What, you don't eat like that every day?" As it turns out, we don't! It was incredible, and they thoughtfully left us enough to make one more meal for two the next night.


  1. I was thrilled to see these photos and to read the menu. Delicious!

    What charming guests, they were!
    Love, Mom

  2. Tell me about it! We had a wonderful time, and though it rained torrentially the first day, the next day it was sunny and warm and they got to see Lowell at its finest, in the sun!

  3. YUM!! And I'm reading this at lunch-time so everything looks extra delicious.

    Have a wonderful time at the wedding!

    ps I'm wearing my gorgeous earrings!

  4. I want to have a private chef, send them to Virginia next, ok?

  5. Maia - which pair? LOL!! The wedding will be amazing, mayhaps I'll blog about it

    Sandra - I'll see what I can do, but I can't make any promises :)

  6. Hee Hee, naughty friend, yesterday I was wearing one pair, today I'm wearing the other! I'm an equal opportunity earring wearer!
