The 'best of the best' for a night to remember!
Note: A rush to get dinner on the table for my honored guests by 8:00, left much unsaid. First, thanks dear Karen, who honored me at 'Mrs. Grumpy's' feast ... then the delightful meme at veg Plotting ... a creative day for sure ... give it a try! Each guest was chosen, not only to delight my honored guest, an artist herself, but because they have all held my heart throughout my life. Click on each name to discover wonders for yourself (my photographs speak in praise of those who have lived before me) and click on the food, chosen with each in mind ... the chocolate cheesecake, on Karen's request. Though only 3-5 guests were to be invited, once my mother knew Monet was coming (not only for his artistic hand but love of food), she insisted on being included, and rightly so. Though she has not touched this earth in over 34 years, she lives beside me ... my first garden mentor, knowing gardening was a good thing simply watching her smile, wiping her freckled nose coming in from the garden and then again watching her magic hand in the kitchen.
