Steelhead Trout For Our Friends

     We are so lucky to be visiting friends in Vermont this week. They have been so gracious inviting us to share fall with them year after year. They have allowed us to prepare dinner for them tonight. As we nibble on crackers and goat cheese we are preparing a feast..

Margot introduced us to a variety of squash called  "Little Gem" which she roasted and served with maple syrup on top. It was delicious.
Dinner with friends is always wonderful
TIP OF THE DAY: When visiting friends for the weekend offer to cook for your hosts.    It’s great to unwind, chat, nibble on snacks and prepare a good meal with friends. It’s a nice change from going out to a restaurant and you can linger over the prep and the meal for as long as you wish.
