Kevin's shingles are healing and he is not contagious to anyone any more, so we followed through with our scheduled dinner last night. I try to keep the meal simple enough so that I can enjoy visiting as much as everyone else. Crockpots make this easier. I made stew. One pot was chicken stew and the other was beef stew. Sadly, I have to report that while getting the right size pots out I broke out the bottom of my favorite 4 quart crock. (I did cry!) Back to the stews...They must have been well received because there was very little leftover. The beer batter biscuits disappeared as well.
The dessert was a new one and so delicious. Banana Foster Tart. Having lived in New Orleans I had experienced this dessert on several occasions and have thought of it several time since, but I was sure it was more of a delicacy than I would be able to concoct. Believe me it is going into the keep and remake file. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TASTY and decadent.
