Appetizer (a quick bite): Roasted Beet Salad. I agree with what she says about beets not being for everyone, but I'm one of the ones who happens to LOVE them! ESPECIALLY paired with blue cheese and balsamic reduction. YUM! I can't wait to try this, except that the one thing I don't love is walnuts, so I plan to replace those with pine nuts. I predict a new favorite. :-)
Entree (something to chew on for awhile): Why Hospitality Beats Entertaining. Yes. Every time. Always.
Dessert (just for fun): I love the artistry of this. So creative!
Coffee (sip and savor slowly and repeatedly):
[The devil] always sends errors into the world in pairs--pairs of opposites. And he always encourages us to spend a lot of time thinking which is the worse. You see why, of course? He relies on your extra dislike of the one error to draw you gradually into the opposite one. But do not let us be fooled. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and go straight through between both errors. We have no other concern than that with either of them. ~ C. S. Lewis
