Chocolates…too pretty to eat?
I can never resist taking a pic of these Christopher Elbow chocolates. Got these for Valentine’s Day, and they taste as good as they look! Yum!
Soup for Lunch
At our house, we usually have soup on hand. With cheese and crackers and cold cuts or leftovers or even frozen pizza baked with extra toppings, it makes a quick and yummy lunch.

The Juice Incidents
I grew up under the shadow of The Grape Juice Incident, then in adulthood encountered The Lemon Juice Incident and The Orange Juice Incident. I survived them all. When has your family been influenced by an incident involving food?
