Dinner Saturday was nice, but a bit formal. It's been a while since I've been to a "formal" dinner. This wasn't technically a formal dinner - it just felt that way for some reason. Maybe it's just me because Mrs. Fly didn't feel that way. We have people over a lot and go over to people's houses a lot, but it's almost always casual. Either a larger gathering where people stand/sit and eat while mingling or some outdoor dining with friends. You know - the comfortable and fun ways to eat. So I'm sitting there in the dining room and for some reason, I start feeling really self-conscious about the way I'm holding my knife and fork, because it's been so long since I actually paid attention to how I ate.
primer on how to eat. It's pretty ridiculous that grown adults have to concern themselves with crap like this. Slippery suckers.
I liked the hostess as soon as I saw three kinds of dead animal - beef, lamb and chicken. All over roasted and served with a dry curry rice, asparagus and a tomato and mozzarella salad. She also made a nice melon & prosciutto appetizer. Mrs. Fly's spoiled me for eating at other people's houses, but I appreciated that the hostess went thru a lot of effort to have us over and make all the food from scratch.
