Wednesday we were invited to Francoises's house for dinner. Francoise is Manu's Mom. She is a wonderful woman. She is warm and kind. She always dresses in a very fun, kind of eccentric way although you can't really tell in this picture. I love her and I love the way she dresses. It is always stylish, but just a little out of the ordinary. She is very artistic, paints, draws, and makes jewelry. She is very knowledgeable in the scriptures and she is fun to talk to and to be with.
We had a wonderful evening together. She prepared a great meal. We started out with an aperitif of radishes and the sweetest cantaloupe ever. There was homemade bread. The entree was a Moroccan dish. Green salad followed the main course with a vinaigrette that she swirled in the serving bowl, at the table so we could all see the oil, mustard, and vinegar combine together into the delicious vinaigrette. Dessert was pears in rose water and perfume. It was soooooo good.
We really enjoyed her company, the food and the conversation.
