Come Dine With Me


Last night our frends Liz and Adrian hosted a rather splendid dinner party at their beautiful Victorian mews house. Come and share the fun.


Liz and Adrian


Liz and Al


Us


Adrian's the chef in their house and a very excellent one at that.


Al eagerly awaits dinner


Ambient lighting



Thai-style prawn cakes

Fiery Tom Yan soup with wild mushrooms.


Thai vegetables in a yellow curry sauce


Chicken curry in a Thai green sauce


Cheers!


These massive wine glasses are fatal.


Mine host prepares to dish up


Liz and Adrian's favourite eBay purchase


Evil Edna is our nickname for their bizarre Indian clay shrine


Liz couldn't get enough of Adrian's homemade coffee ice cream and insisted on scraping out the ice cream maker.



Apparently there were some sore heads this morning, surprisingly I was hangover free.



Liz (on the left) even managed to get up for the sunday morning car boot sale.



Liz and I have been friends for nearly forty years.


Indian artefacts are dotted throughout Liz and Adrian's house although they've not yet been to India.


Waiting for taxis.


Oh dear, looks like someone's overdone the vintage cognac again.



Me at 1.30am, resplendant in my £5.95 Jean Varon frock and a pretty vintage jet choker courtesy of the lovely Char.

Hope you've had fantastic weekends.

  12. You have fun and striking friends, Vix, and I'm envying the homecooked Thai dinner...and the wine, and vintage cognac. I was just going to ask if your friends had been India, considering all their artifacts, then I saw that they had not. Are they planning to go soon? I bet you'll be an invaluable source of travel advice. Someday when I plan my trip, I'll certainly be contacting you!

    Your makeup and hair look lovely, and I'm glad to see that gorgeous Jean Varon gown at a party.

  13. Looks a fab night and you all look gorgeous! How come you still look so fresh and lovely at 1.30am??!! My mum has just bought me a skirt exactly the same as the skirt of your Jean Varon dress! £1.50. Don't know the make yet though as she isn't bringing it up til May. Told her about your 20p Horrockses dress yesterday and she had the same reaction as me haha! xx

  24. How are you still standing at 1:30 a.m. after such delicious food, especially the dessert, and such gargantuan wine glasses. Looks like a delightful time and they have a lovely home.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I thoroughly approve of the amount of alcohol on display on that table! None of my friends seem to be drinking recently and it's mildly disconcerting - I always feel a bit alkie-like if I'm the only one on the wine.

    The food looks utterly delish too. I must get more adventurous and try cooking Thai stuff at home.
