Grown up food

Today at a planning meeting for a women's retreat, we had a lovely lunch at the home of one our team members.
Everyone used their words when they wanted more of something.
No food was spilled on the floor.
No one had to be excused for burping, farting or showing their chewed food to everyone else.
The mothers of the toddlers were more noticeably amazed than the others present by the menu which featured NO PEANUT BUTTER or FISH CRACKERS of any kind.

We ate:
squash and yam soup, topped with chutney and spiced, roasted pecans
spinach salad with pears and blue cheese
rosemary herb bread with butter
lovely rolled cinnamon cookies
green tea with brown rice

After a considerable amount of time spent ooo-ing and ahhh-ing, we also got some planning done.
