It's been a bit of a gloomy afternoon as is evidenced by the pic taken this afternoon from the kitchen door.
I spent most of the day in the kitchen. We are having friend's for dinner tonight and I made Osso Bucco. Yum!!! Next I was faced with the 'dessert' challenge...... never my 'long suit'. Decided to try Julia Child's version of Apple Charlotte. I've had a tinned Charlotte mould for years!! This was a labor of love and it doesn't look all that pretty but I'll bet it'll tast pretty good covered with whipped cream!!!
'himself' took Cicero for a lovely long walk this afternoon and has just made a fire. Guess I'd better get a move on and finish up dinner preparations.
