Well, it was prettier, but gathered victims fell upon it (me included) as we were hungry. Some carnage followed (see stain on tablecloth) but thumbs up all round. (recipe: assorted leaves including bog standard lettuce, lamb's lettuce, rocket and watercress, beetroot in balsamic, feta, red onion... dressing with mustard, lemon juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic). Followed by boeuf bourgignon (with rice and mash (don't ask!), green beans and peas (again, don't ask). Finally, apple and cherry spongey pudding with (and without) ice cream. All gathered victims left VERY full, so we had to leave the Scalectrix tournament to the cats.
