My daughter in law has family visiting from Brazil and I am feeding them while they are here. I wanted to make typical American food. They arrived late last night so I made a meat and cheese platter with lots of my homemade pickles and compotes. This is always a good meal to sit out when people are just sitting around a table and talking. There is something for everyone and they can just pick at it as they please. Pickled hard boiled eggs are a nice surprise.
I also threw together a pesto pasta and fresh mozzarella bowl. Most everyone likes pasta.
I made them a strawberry rhubarb pie. I don't think they get pie in South America and I certainly don't think they have rhubarb.
And brownies! Sorry about the quality of the photos but I am so busy that I am lucky I remembered to get any at all.
I made French bread and ramp butter to go with the meat and cheese.
And chocolate chip cookies. Right now I am making them a huge breakfast to eat before they go out exploring today.
