So during my first week of full unemployment (almost), I planned a dinner party; decided on a Moroccan theme starting with homemade hummus with pita (is this Moroccan???) roasted almonds and marinated olives. Dinner began with roasted marinated eggplant:
served on my Mother's china and one of the beautiful embroidered tablecloths she's given me throughout the years and a lovely lamb tagine, which I neglected to take a picture of since I'm new at this, with baked jasmine pilaf. And of course too many wines to mention. We invited our neighbors Louise and Michael and ate and drank too much...and all on a Thursday no less. Unemployment has it's charm.
