with bonus menus

The last of our house guests departed about three hours ago, and we've been washing linens and trying to reassemble the place a bit. Dinner guets are still due in a couple of hours (and I need to shower still...), but they'll be gone again long before bedtime. Or not so long, depending on how fast we fall over. It's been good to have everybody here we've had in the last fortnight--we had a good time with all of them--but I could really use a return to quiet routine for a bit.

...which, of course, is not going to happen, since markgritter's California trip will be unusually long this time, and also there are people who are going to do more basement work starting tomorrow.

Ah well. Never a dull moment, and at least I finished off one of the two never-ending novelettes. Here, have a brunch menu:

[I should have had pears here but forgot to put them on the table, so I will be eating pears this week]
cold blueberry soup with mango and cardamom
chocolate bread
choice of butter, apple butter, or strawberry preserves (the latter two made by porphyrin)
roasted yams with sea salt and rosemary
scrambled eggs with tomatoes, basil, and sharp cheddar.

And a dinner menu:

ice cream.

Sometimes ordering in is the better part of valor. You heard it was discretion, didn't you? Just goes to show you can't believe everything you hear.
