A Good Feed

Tonight we were invited to a party by my mother’s friends, and they put out a good table. Yesterday I made braised moose again — wine rather than beer braise, packed with fresh basil — fresh basil pesto, and fire-roasted tomato, mango, and chipotle salsa. The previous day I grilled a chicken, with fried potatoes and a salad that mom made. 

Mom says that she’s gained six pounds since I arrived. 

UPDATE: My mother’s final total was seven-and-a-half pounds gained. She says she’ll have to diet until my next visit.
