Mixed with my pleasure of being up and running (the blog, not me - I gave running up long ago!) are feelings of anger and utter frustration that assault weapons are still being tolerated by so many! It continues to be an American tragedy/failure....shame on us!! We need to do a better job of electing morally competent leaders. We owe it to not only the 17 who were murdered in in my new state this week, but to all the innocent lives that have been taken because some deranged idiot was allowed to buy/access a gun...shame on us!
Not being in the mood to cook or "dine" but knowing "the meal must go on" I chose to put together an old favorite....a platter of cheeses, veggies etc.... antipasto
The cheeses: cheddar, mozzarella, blue and smoked gouda.
The meats: prosciutto and salami.
The veggies: green beans, red and yellow peppers, and olives.
EVOO, seasoned with garlic and dried basil was drizzled on the veggies and thinly sliced baguette (not shown)
The wines: His - LeCremaPinot Noir
Hers - Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay
