Musing with Max

Musing with Max

...and it begins

So after soooo many years of working continously I find myself an unemployed statistic. Completely blindsided, knocked over the head, hit by a brick, etc. etc. And still like an idiot doing work from home to finish up...let's not talk about the (non) pay. So what am I to do now...guess what...don't know. But like my lovely Frank  says:
Find yourself! Didn't know I was lost but I guess I am.
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.

Max was the perfect little gentleman! No begging or anything.
