Marketplace in Paris

DSC03071My friends, Dan and Fran Rycerz recently returned from Europe, and shared this photo of various fruit at an outdoor marketplace in Paris, France.

I love the beautiful colors!  We should all eat ‘colorful’ food everyday…not just fruit.

Enjoy the photo.  Thanks, Dan and Fran.

Appetizers for 150

I just made appetizers for a party of 150 people! It was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. My friend Carol helped me prepare seven different dishes; a fruit and cheese platter, two chicken dishes, cucumber cups, salad skewers, quesadillas, and brownies. Didn’t have much left, so I guess they liked it. appetizer-party-0301appetizer-party-0311
