Thai-ing one on

Sunday (yesterday) we hosted six friends for a Thai lunch. Just the thing to take the edge off Paris' winter chill.

I got off easy. My jobs were the table, wine (Gewurtztraminer and Tokay/Pinot Gris) and dessert. Flame-Haired Angel, on the other hand, created three beautiful courses: Tom Yum Goong, followed by a salad of barbecued duck with lime, mint and onion, and finally a green chicken curry. And one of our friends was vegetarian, so FHA doubled up her work, making veggie versions of every dish. She rocks.

I tailed the meal with baked lime puddings and jasmine tea.

We took our time, and lunch didn't end 'til 6pm.

Then, after doing dishes, Flame-Haired Angel and I curled up with the extra prawns, the left-over champagne, and snuggled in front of Brideshead Revisited on DVD.
