Is This Wonderful ?




totally loving all the fresh veggies as a centerpiece,
and the perfect little fig on the plate.

beautiful, surprising, simple abundance.

did I tell you I made bacon-wrapped dates for a cocktail party
we had on the 23rd?
inserted a small slice of jalapeno into each date,
wrapped the date with bacon, and baked.

everyone died.

    That's one lovely table!
