"A Night Out...."

Lonnie and Charlie were kind enough to ask Don and I over to dinner last Saturday night. I know I need not say this, but will anyway.....the dinner was delicious and the company "divine". :)

Me, a comfortably resting Jillian, and Charlie......


Lonnie stirring up something in the kitchen......


Don helping to stir while Lonnie was down at the grill.....Charlie did take over soon after this photo was taken. We certainly wouldn't want him to become TOO comfortable in the kitchen, now would we? :)


Lonnie and Charlie had gone to a store that sells things from casks/barrels. They'd bought some Hazelnut Oil and some aged Balsamic Vinegar. I was having a taste test of the oil/vinegar combination. It was delicious...but when Don was given the same thing, it somehow hit him differently! He coughed and coughed, like it had gone down wrong! We still do not know what it was about it that caused him to do that. I doubt I'll be able to get him to go to this shop and try some of their stock.......but one never knows..... :)


Lonnie thought the dressing made from these ingredients was "good to the last drop". :)


We had a really nice time with Lonnie and Charlie. As I said earlier, the food was delicious (minus Don's unfortunate taste test), and the company "divine". :)

Well! Maybe Don won't be partaking of my hazelnut butter!

Oh, one more thing, the picture of Don cooking is really cool! I love the HUGE wine glass in the foreground. Very arty!
