>One good thing about having company: it forces you to clean!
The day was a pristine, perfect 75-80 degrees with a slight breeze and we were able to hang outside on the patio when the family (my brother Barry, his fiance, Gretchen, friends and a nephew) came.
I spit roasted the lamb after marinating it in a blend of fresh rosemary and other seasonings and it turned out just delicious! The ham was cooked as I’ve always done them, from my mom’s recipe, with pineapple rings, ginger ale, brown sugar and lots of cloves. I threw in more fresh ginger slices and yeah, it was delicious!
So, though I was unable to paint, the day was not wasted. In fact, it was quite a lovely respite!
