It was last week. I had prepared a Waldorf salad and brownies for an American theme potluck dinner.
The evening was all fun.
Simon, the host, has an amazing collection of retro pinballs and we all played like teenagers for the last part of the night.

Foodwise, it was like travelling from one state to another with a fair share of desserts.
We ate and chat in the cosy and art deco style living room, with the melody of old American songs playing on the turntable.
I feasted on a seafood chowder and a comforting vegetable casserole – a grandma recipe I was told- and was introduced to gumbo.

The Waldorf salad was also a first time.
And I’m glad I gave it a go. I’ve repeatedly made it for lunch since then. It’s ready in no time and the Spring-like days* we had lately, made me crave for nothing else.
So last week-end I bought a big head of celery at the farmers market, knowing it’d be used up in soups… and salads too.
