You decide upon your own bedtime, you get to watch your choice of TV, you don't have to ask if you can open the Christmas Quality Street early and... you get to have dinner parties.
I'm in the early planning stages at the moment, helped by my new, favourite waste of time, Pinterest.
So, four courses on the 4th August for six guests (with left overs of course)...
What do you think?
|First course-Smoked Salmon blini's with lemon and caper sauce|
|Second - Persian Lamb with a pomegranate salad|
|Cheese - Creamy Blue with honey pears and spiced walnuts|
|Ginger Cheesecake with dark chocolates and coffee|
