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.

Marsha, you had me until the hot stomach is iron clad but can't take the hot peppers any more -grin-.
That's one lovely table!

Yes, it is wonderful and so is your new header. I love the idea of the addition of jalapeno to the date and bacon - I will definitely try it.
