Good Morning Darlings!

With Easter just four short days away, have you selected your menu? Thought about table decor? Invited your guests? Thought about cocktails?

Whatever shall you do?

Snow Day 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Yesterday was such fun. With the snow piling up, Atlanta shut down. The neighbors took to the park to sled and just play in the snow. And since all that sledding and snowball fighting works up an appetite, I suggested a pot luck supper at our house around 5pm.

Eric sleds down the hill.....whee!!!

Come have fun with us!

A Mediterranean Repast With Dave & Sue

Good Morning, Darlings!

I live in the greatest neighborhood in the world. Our neighbors are all close friends and the parties are almost continuous. Especially when the weather turns nice and we are all roused from our hibernation of the winter.

This past week was a divine dinner held at the home of our friends Dave and Sue.  Dave, a pastry chef, and his charming wife Sue had conjured up the perfect warm weather meal, a deconstructed salade nicoise. This was the ideal foil for the sweltering late spring we have been experiencing.

I had visited their home before, but never in the daylight. I was thrilled to stroll through the backyard garden with a pre-dinner cocktail.
