Supper at mom’s house
C and I drove across town to my mom’s beautiful house, to give her a hand hosting an Easter supper for ten friends.
Mom planned a traditional Czech supper of roast ducks with dumplings and poached pears, I love traditional food from my homeland.
I also love mom’s eclectic house full of wonderful collections gathered by her and my late father over years and years of world travel, including such anachronistic things as a life-sized carved Komodo dragon, a 17C dining room suite imported from a pub in England, 18C tapestries, French quilts, Waterford crystal, old Limoges china, an original Turner, and a large collection of my aunt Vera’s beautiful paintings.
We love mom’s friends, but when a bunch of doctors get together, parts of the conversation invariably turns to statistics, body parts and medical terms we don’t understand. But they’re all generous at explaining…in great detail! 😀
But we did have a terrific time and drove home quite late, under the full moon. 😀
