Oh, This Feast!


My heart and head were in a whirl--the camera saw that. 
That's Pete ladling Gazpacho into a punch cup while I stand at the ready to re-fill the bowl.
The rest of the menu is below: Mussels, clams, smashed cucumber salad, fruit salad, cubes of feta garnished so prettily they looked like petits fours. There was homemade hummus and little add-ons for the gazpacho. There were brownies and a Greek cake topped with nuts and cinnamon and powdered sugar. There was ice cream and espresso. There were 14 of us feasting and it was perfect.





 There was also my friend Nomi, who knows how to capture a moment.


And the next night there were leftovers for Pete and my mom and me. 
The gazpacho grew even more delicious.

Everything got better and better and better.
