Sunday was a very culinary day. ;) After doing my chores and my laundry, I decided that a potluck lunch was in order, and I called up Andrew and Mike. They were glad to come even though they had just half an hour's notice. (Heh.) Mike didn't answer his phone the first few times I called, so I couldn't borrow his teriyaki stirfry sauce. Instead, I prepared sesame and ginger chicken stirfry from scratch. I also contributed jasmine rice (no ginger this time). Andrew brought homemade wonton and garlic string beans, and Mike brought a sack of fruits. Much fun was had by all, especially by Andrew, who turned out to be a closet food stylist.
Barbecue for dinner was absolutely fantastic, too. Bill joined us, bringing these totally awesome homemade(!!) jalapeno sausages and other wonderful things. Andrew brought vegetable skewers, Mike brought potatoes and turkey sausages, and I brought fruits (my canteloupe, oranges and apples, plus Mike's mango).
This segued naturally into coffee time and a nice long chat with Bill, Chloe, and Stefan. Chloe's even perkier than I am. She's _so_ cool. And so British, too... =)
