For dinner with our old friends James and Dominique, I made a simple mediterranean menu with some help from my favorite falafel place, picking up their incredibly smooth hummus and delightfully sticky baklava. Fresh herbs in terra cotta planters seemed to fit the theme. Now, I've said it once, and I'll say it again, games are so much fun!!! I was psyched when the evening turned competitive with board games. While British James got away with a lot of 'They have it in England' in Scattergories, I have to commend him for his 77 point Scrabble word: 'lintiest'. Kudos to you James.
