11:50 AM



This isn't a normal 11:50 AM in the bungalow.
Normal is lunch at the island.
On Monday we were having a business lunch at our house. . .
and so we were ready.


I had a pot of Borscht on the stove. .
Marg's Health Buns fresh on the table with still slightly firm fresh butter.
A rhubarb platz baked in the morning sat on the counter.
(all out of the book in case he wanted the recipe ...smile)


I've begun to serve Mennonite Food to people who are not familiar with it.
It suddenly dawned on me. . .
it is  special and unique and tasty.

The lunch was enjoyed by the business man and my beloved. .
while I enjoyed the fresh bit of summer in the vases.

All for now. . .

  2. Sounds like a wonderful idea and share our ethnic customs with others. Most of our appointments are in restaurants...This makes it truly unique in sharing your faith for love of people.
