A Witching Good Party

This past spring I was lucky enough to be asked to join a tennis team that has been playing together for 20 years. Besides their tennis wisdom and fun personalities, they show what true friendships are all about.

We had a buffet of delicious food….pork loin, a bulgar wheat and tomato salad, dark greens with winter squash, goat cheese and dried plums, okra straws (which are quite yummy) and quiche. For dessert, the German ladies out did themselves with apple strudel, cinnamon-pecan-amazing cake, and bite-sized cheesecakes with raspberry centers. Yum!
