Summer Garden Ladies Evening
In the summer of 2008 I hosted a Summer Garden Ladies Evening. I wanted to give all my lady friends a chance to get dressed up and come hang out in the garden.

The guys were thrilled to be surrounded by so many ladies and happily agreed!! It was a fun filled evening with drinks, food, plenty of laughter and good cheer.

Cauliflower and Roasted Garlic Soup
I made this soup the first Sunday of the New Year after the holidays. It was time to get back into the Sunday Soup routine that I had started last year. Everyone loved the idea of having soup on Sundays for dinner, and it made it easy for me too to plan the meal for Sunday – it was going to be soup, that’s it! Nothing else!
