A family Sunday dinner...

Kezzie and I are in love with this book of Jamie's...
Our oohs and aahs can be heard by anyone within a one mile radius. 
So enamoured are we that we've decided to cook our way through the book together. The weekly family dinner now has an added bit of fun! 
Tonight it was dinner at our house so it was up to me to do the mains, and Kezzie would bring the dessert.
From page 98 I made Mustard Chicken, and from the same page, Potato Dauphinoise. I added a side salad and some olive bread...
 This huge bowl was full of Mustard Chicken when we started dinner but it sure disappeared fast!
 10yo grandson, Cal, gave me a 10/10 for the meal. \o/
 
Kezzie wanted to make the Rhubarb Millefeuille from page 176 but we couldn't find any rhubarb in town  so she switched the rhubarb for strawberries. Her Strawberry Millefeuille was divine!
 
SIL Bert enjoyed every mouthful of dinner...
In fact we all did. :-)
I made fresh apple jellies for the boys in case the Millefeuille was too rich for them...
 3yo Dee decided he'd eat both desserts. 
He just wasn't keen on nana taking his photo. 
I love family dinners.
Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday in your home too.
Hugs

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
