vegetables

The kids and I visited an old and dear friend in Asheville, North Carolina this weekend, staying for several days in the peace of her warm home.  We explored the city, played in the woods, got to experience snow again, and spent hours just being and talking.  I loved it there and am now committed to one day living in that great city.  My friend is a chef, a traveler, a lover of Slow Food, on her way to Italy for a year-long culinary Master’s program.  My children and I got to experience, with her calm presence, the making of a meal.  Thank you, my friend.  Oh yes, and there will be more photos to follow.
