Mah Jongg is not just a game. It has become a part of my life that allows me to entertain my Mah Jongg-playing friends, cook great meals to serve to them and test my mental skills during our game play (which, hopefully, is often).
MAH JONGG LUNCHEON AND GAME PLAY
Last month I gave a luncheon in honor of Toby Salk‘s visit to NYC. There were eight of us so we were able to have two tables of MJ. We were also celebrating Gail K’s birthday – for dessert we had a birthday cake along with Mah Jongg party favors. Of course, around the game tables there were lots of snacks and candy! In the excitement of the day, I totally forgot to take photos but Toby did shoot some for me. Hopefully she will send more but here is the first one she sent to me:
We had a great lunch – first a spinach dip with crudités and also a couple of bowls of rosemary cashews followed by a lunch of chilaquiles, guacamole, salsa, and chips plus a salad of chopped lettuce with lots of goodies on top and homemade ranch dressing. And then, after a few hours of game play, the chocolate ganache cake came out and, if I say so myself, it was yummy!
Here’s a photo of the rosemary cashews and the chocolate ganache cake (yum!).
I can testify that Ann is the “hostess with the mostess”. EVERYTHING, the tables, the sets, the food, oh my God the FOOD!!! EVERYTHING was divine. IF you are ever invited to Ann’s home, the only thing to do is say YES! Thank you Ann for all you did for me.
