It was a good day from beginning to end. I did get the dusting, vacuuming, and all the rest of those onerous tasks done. I did get all the feed unloaded from the truck. I did get prep work for dinner done before barn chores. Whew.
I was actually ready when the Ladies arrived. We'd agreed on an early meal. Camille and I have animals to attend at sundown and Linda has the longer drive (Arden lives right around the corner), so 4:30 seemed about right. Frying the cauliflower fritters took a little longer than I'd hoped, but turned out really well. I tweaked the original recipe and added corn starch to the batter; that made for a crispier coating. The pork tenderloin was juicy and tender, and Linda made a tasty dressing for the salad. Fresh green beans completed the menu.
