Marie Catrib’s: ladies’ lunch with the bishop

There were so many people helping, I’m sorry I don’t remember – but Thank you, everyone!

The tables looked very festive, decorated in green and red. I got too caught up in everything to take pictures of the room, but one thing I didn’t forget…

There was also chick peas and eggplant in a tomato sauce over rice, and a mixed green salad with oil and lemon dressing. And…
