If I write all that is on my heart before bed, I will be up very very late and tomorrow there is the food prep still ahead. Suffice it to say that gatherings out in Chestermere with the Ya Yas continues to be one of the most delightful events possible for me. We are six women (we missed Dar today) who have grown to support, confide and laugh loudly together and today was no exception. The visit shifted my entire view of things and caused me such peace that I have been happily working away with my own meal preparations ever since.
As I have written several times before, Wendy’s husband, Darren, treats us like we are all princesses. He is a genuinely talented chef, but also very entertaining with his tremendous knowledge about food, ingredients and food preparation. If I get a minute tomorrow, I’ll make certain that I tag some of his previous menus.
But for now…just wanting to link up with Darren’s own blog and his narrative about his special creamed chicken recipe. Today’s menu was delicious! Homemade Borscht and sour cream, perfectly mashed potatoes and some sort of corn meal ‘stuff’…(Oh…just wait a minute; I’ll go and look it up….)
I’m back. (didn’t find the name for the dish that was made of cornmeal) OH YES I DID FIND IT….Creamed Chicken served with Mamaliga (polenta).
I didn’t grab a photograph of our dessert…poppy seed loaf and special cookies made with a substitute flour and hot tea served in ornate tea cups.
Thank you for hosting, Wendy and Darren….and thank you to each of you for your generous hearts.
