to get our children in China, these lovely little girls know how much they are loved!
It seems like yesterday that we were together, hanging on together , doing our best to
let these beautiful little girls know they were safe with their new families!
Oh the time....

The fact that they are in our side yard is nice, since our front yard is much less formal in style!
and take all of this in!

Could it be that it was where I was eating them? Maybe so, but look how pretty, topped with a dollop
of whipped mushroom paste, though very light, careful not to overpower those beautiful scallops!
Our lunch this day lasted for 3 hours! Perfect amount of time , as each dish slowly and quietly arrives.
Each dish, a delightful surprise!

Sometimes reading about how certain foods are made/created is best left to the palate!
While in France, this beautiful little (or not so little) plate of foie gras was divine....
A dollop of fig spread topped with lemon zest, along with some gently tossed greens
made for a decadent dish! This was only the beginning!
