Before anyone thinks I am superwoman, I will point out that our guests all helped by bringing a salad, pudding or nibbles. Our menu consisted of slow roasted lamb shoulder with lemon, white wine, rosemary and garlic. (This is my "summer" version of lamb shoulder.) The Farmer told everyone he cooked it, which was quite plainly rubbish, and I heard him telling our guests exactly how much wine he put in (half a bottle apparently).
We had lots of gorgeous salads. Pudding consisted of chocolate brownies, meringues, a beautiful peach tart made by a friend, cream and berries. I seem to always trot out some version of meringues/pav for summer parties. I sometimes wonder if our guests get sick of it however the one time I made something else our friends were disappointed as they had been looking forward to pav all day!
Anyway, as usual, I took no food photos as there was too much going on by the time the food came out. I did manage some photos of the table beforehand. My garden is tired and crispy after a very hot January so I resorted to young eucalyptus leaves instead of flowers.

Overall we had a fantastic night. There were kids everywhere and Farmboy excelled himself by taking an accidental swim in our fish pond....
Although I forgot the food photos I did snap this one after everyone had gone home. Think we need to take the Christmas lights down!

Hope everyone had a good weekend.
