Welcome To Foodie Friday

Spring brings the promise of something beautiful waiting to bloom..

Soon these tiny bubs on our Plum tree will blossom into.....

these pink and....

luscious flowers.

I wait with bated breath.


This was my sweet inspiration for our SPRING BRUNCH.

I built a potato nest.

Filled it with, smoked ham, an egg and
a white sharp cheddar hollandaise sauce.
It's hard to snap photos with a ravenous husband trying to eat the foodscape while it's hot!
Folded dinner napkins turned into bunnies, forming napkin rings. I like mine with (candy) faces, which is optional.
*I will be posting instruction for the bunnies.*

A spring /summer delight....*THE PARFAIT*
This is no ordinary yogurt parfait.
Using (only)the following ingredients to achieve maximum deliciousness..
(Dannon) La Creme' vanilla yogurt, Trader Joes vanilla almond granola, fresh fruit.
Layer each ingredient generously and enjoy.
This has become a popular request from my guests during their stay.

When their petals drop....I play amongst the pink snow flakes.

Okay girl, when did you actually post this? Because it's saying 5 days ago, but this is the first I'm seeing it. I'm guessing you had it in draft and then published without changing the date?

OmG, that potato thing looks soooooooooooooo good! so does the parfait!!!!

The nests look scrumptious and so does the fruit! No wonder your foodscape wants is about to be eaten before you finish!
