Dinner at Chez Nouveau Julie and Dave

Julie & Dave moved into a wonderful condo in Arlington. It's on a quiet street leading into some lovely conservation land. Last night they fed Sue and me at their new digs.

The kitchen is a muted mustard color that goes well with Dave's cap.

Sue is back from Italy.  She brought us some pasta that we ate with pesto, parmesan, and pine nuts.  She brought us jars of truffles.

Julie gives her new kitchen a workout and puts together four beautiful salads:

Stanley and Clifford are still getting used to their new home.

Here's something I've never seen before: a lard hole.  Under this lid is a bucket into which householders would dump their old lard.  Periodically the lard collector would collect the lard.

Time for a snooze.
