The Armchair Squid and his family invited us over for a wonderful pasta and meatball dinner on Saturday.
It was such a lovely afternoon, spending time with good friends, a dreamy, ethereal selection of music playing in the background, and anticipating a wonderful homemade meal! Our friend Paul brought loaves of his crusty bread, and we brought this Apple Almond Tart for dessert. We chatted and played games, while the kids played outside in the crisp air.
Then it was time to eat. And this perfectly civilized gathering with perfectly civilized people devolved into a feeding frenzy. We devoured the bread, the pasta, the meatballs, the perfectly dressed bowl of mixed salad greens. Armchair Squid's Wife and I drank almost all the Chianti (wait, was it just me? Did I leave any for her?) Haley drank all the ginger beer.
