My Dinner Party at Skylands

As you know from reading my blog, I spent Memorial Day weekend at Skylands, my home in Maine.  My guests were so generous with their time and energy on Saturday helping to plant the giant urns on the terrace, that I decided Sunday would be a day to relax and do some fun stuff.  My guests joined me for a walk through the Eden Farmer’s Market in Bar Harbor.  You may recall my blog about this wonderful market last July.  It’s always interesting to see what’s being offered and to mingle a bit with my farmer friends.  Of course, we also did some antiquing at my favorite places.  Later in the day, back at Skylands, we prepared for a dinner party with some of my friends and neighbors.  Because the weather was quite chilly, I asked Pierre to make a big and beautiful pot-au-feu, the ultimate French comfort food.
