Initially, Ragnar had thought it was a great idea to invite Mason over to test out his menu for Saturday. Mason was a man of good taste, and didn't mince his words. Ragnar would get an honest opinion from him.
Now, though, he was rambling and nervous and not really his usual charming self, which wasn't brilliant. He and Mason had yet to spend time together socially, and he really didn't want to put a dent in the moderate opinion the other man seemed to have of him.
"Three courses for lunch is a little heavy, I understand. I have lightened it up in a few ways, but I will take no offense if you do not eat it all. You have work tonight?"
Ragnar had lead Mason through to the lounge and kitchen area, gesturing for him to sit.
"I have an old friend coming over for dinner Saturday evening. I would very much welcome your opinion on the food."
Several stacks of papers and books were piled up beside the coffee table and the sofa, but respectfully out of the way. "I have a conference at the end of the month, please excuse the mess. I have made salmon en papillote for the starter, but more Scandinavian than French."
He took a seat a few cushions down from Mason. "And how is your house guest? I am afraid I have been slacking on my fireside entertainment of late, but I am sure you don't need me to warm you both up."
