I was invited to speak to the Bannockburn Garden Club this week. It was such a lovely group of women. I feel at home with people who love to garden and cook. Many of these women live a few blocks from me but we have never met. It is always a gift to get to meet your neighbors especially those that share your interests. I live in Deerfield so I’m just a block away from joining this great group of women on their yearly adventures relating to gardening.
We spent our time discussing recipes that worked with our end of season vegetables. I made Gazpacho filled with tomatoes, cucumbers, and a variety of peppers, served in mason jars. We discussed table dressing… a favorite accent to entertaining. I brought three fun settings for this amazing kitchen that’s accented in red. I hope to get some recipes promised and I am so fortunate to have met all these women.
A special thanks to Joanne, who is a gracious host and has one of my favorite kitchens.
