You go, girl!

I celebrated my friend, Ann, and her well-earned retirement today. She spent a rewarding career as a school-teacher; and a damn good one. I am happy for her to explore the next decades doing whatever her heart desires.

Cheers, my dear!!!!

Le pâtisserie.

Beautiful dessert.

Monte made a beautiful dessert tonight:  tarte aux pommes.  Right out of Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Fantastique!

My niece, Rachel, arrived today for a few days visit.  We made cedar plank salmon and leek & mushroom risotto for dinner.  The apple tart topped off the evening.

Julie’s birthday is tomorrow, so we’ll have to celebrate in style.
