Every Sunday is a celebration when Bertie and I visit my parents' house. This weekend, my mother treated Bertie and me to a really exceptional feast of savory, tender roast chicken breasts in a rich, cream sauce of leeks and mushrooms. This was served up with fresh peas seasoned with thyme and brown rice pilaf. We also enjoyed some tasty pretzel rolls with it! Quite lovely!
Equally lovely was the dessert! A gorgeous lemon custard tart. Look at that!
Candied nuts shining like agates atop mounds of piped whipped cream. The homemade crust is a favorite nutty cookie recipe which adds a gorgeous texture with the creaminess of the filling. Cool and luxurious, it was the perfect ending to the savory meal that it followed.
