We couldn't make the family picnic so we invited MIL, FIL and aunt to come for dinner. My MIL brought stuffed mushrooms. Then called to say they were given a bunch of clams that they couldn't eat alone. I steamed them in white wine, a fesh bay leaf and orange peal.
For dinner I made chicken cordon bleu with a shitake mushroom wine sauce, Isreali couscous and a huge tossed salad. I made thousand island dressing - MIL's favorite. For dessert I bought a bag of local peaches and made a peach cobler. I served that warm with homemade vanilla ice cream.
I think the night went well.
