today madi and i made dinner together. she loves to come up with menus and set the table with candles and pretty dishes. she made this fabulous punch from the late 1700s. with cream and citrus...so delish, but about a million grams of fat and calories.
she also made pumpkin pudding--which tasted old-fashioned with the molasses in it. not quite a winner.
i made beef stew. i am thankful for cooking on thursday evenings and eating dinner late by candlelight.
