thanks to mike and susan for allowing us to gather for a feast at their beautiful home. i hope we didnt leave them with too much cleaning up to do. thanks to richard and zim for organizing. i brought home leftovers good for at least 2 meals, as did many others. i'm not going to talk about the food, i'll leave that to others. for me the best part was the good company. what is it about chowhounds, why are we such an interesting bunch?!?!
