I know we'we off schedoole, but since Mommi hasn't been well, Mawdi Gwas at ouw house got postponed a week and Daddi did most of the cooking wif me a soo-chef
ouw fwiendses gathewed in the living woom in fwont of the fiwe fow some champagne bwought by one of ouw deew guests and some cwab dip made by my bwuvvew Duffy and his Mom (you can see pawt of the wivew and the West side highway out ouw window..I love the lights)

ummm, may I have some pleeez?
(Mommi is such a pooshovew, you have to weally sluwp to get all the yummie insides out  hehehehe)
My Bwuvvew Duffy is not to be seen cause he has much bettew mannews and isn't spoiled wotten like some of us(plus he aweady had howsie doovwes eawliew)

aftew all that yummie Gumbo, Mommi thought a nice lemony dessewt would be nice

Asta. All we can say is: "This makes us miss you more than we can say and you can imagine."

What a wonderful time. What a delicious meal (Moma promised to make Muzzer's gumbo for us ... so far all we've had is Nigella's mussels, and they didn't set too well on puppy tummies ,,, must've been the hard cider ... hiccup). What beautiful photographs. And what a perfect way to spend a Sunday evening.

We wish we could've been there.

We love you

Bocci said...

As usual, your dinners leave us drooling! And we so agree, a lemony flan seemed the perfect conclusion to that fabulous dinner:-) This isn't fair, why do we both feel like we're starving although we just ate dinner????

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Don't you just love a wonderful night with the company of wonderful furiends?

There is no more soul- and tummy-filling event than an evening of friends sharing a meal! Daddi provided an incredible meal and mommi's dessert could win awards! Best of all, it looks like everything was dusted with love and sprinkled with togetherness.
