My mother gave me this serving dish a few years ago; it came from her grandmother, and we don't know much about the origins of the bowl. It's old-fashioned and I use it for serving appetizer-style foods: mixed nuts, crudites and dips. Last night, I used it to serve a little antipasti: salami, olives, brushetta, and mozzarella with our risotto and asparagus supper. My friends C and N are with us this week and last night N and I agreed that a bowl like this is guaranteed to have treats. No one ever brings this bowl to the table filled with 4 healthy snacks. At best, you might set it out with veggies in two sections and dip in the other two. That the dish has been on tables in my family for over 60 years is part of its charm. I'll bet it has some stories to tell.
I’ve grown weary of the daily Trump ignorance and mysogyny. I think that the void in GOP leadership is terrifying for our nation. I like to read (I just finished Winston Graham’s The Angry Tide), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… jack-o-lanterns, Halloween decorations, Fall mums, cool mornings, black cats, witch hats & broomsticks, cheese trays, You Tube hair videos, Fall sweaters, watching JT cross the finish line, my teal coffee cup, planning treats, sunrises, sleeping with the windows open, good books, visits with family, Ken Burns documentaries, and the feel of a sweaty workout.
