A Fiesta Celebration

I am feeling so blessed.  A good friend that lived several hours away in Kansas City recently moved less than two miles down the road from me. We had taught together for many years and had even attended classes together while obtaining our Master's degrees. Although we never lost contact with each other, it is amazingly fun to be together. Retirement is so much more fun. We are both new to the area and we both moved here to be close to our children. I just want to share a luncheon we shared to celebrate our friendship.

She has a beautiful bog:

The big dish is one that my son brought back from Mexico for me. I thought it would dress up my Fiesta Ware.

The menu consisted of a BLT Layered Salad ( this new recipe came from, The Italian Roast Beef, fresh fruit and sweet tea. All of which were enjoyable to our taste buds. 

Bread Pudding was filling the room with a pleasing aroma. This turned out to be a delicious dessert.

Thank you for stopping by - JoAnn.
