Yesterday and Thanks

Yesterday I was invited to Betty's house for lunch. She is a lady in my church. I was very excited as this is the first time I have gone to anyone from my churchs' home. We are the newbies and we know it takes awhile to be part of things.

At Betty's house we had *tuna salads* for lunch. You might be thinking...TUNA...so what..but this was REAL Tuna...she had bought the FRESH fish, processed it and it was in a jar....and the difference from Store bought Tuna and this was remarkable.
She served it on a bed of mixed greens from HER GARDEN....FRESH again...yummmm...with her fresh radishes and other veggies. She also served stuffed artichokes which were wonderful. I usually have just steamed mine and then dipped in butter as you go...but she had used cracker crumbs drizzled with olive oil and spices...yummm again.. WHAT A DIFFERENCE !!! Dessert conisted of Tapioca and a cookie. IT was a delightful time of food and fellowship. I would love to tell you more about Betty but I am going to wait and next time take pictures. This lady and her talents she has is impressive.

So this morning I am still thanking the Lord, for this dear sweet woman.. for her friendship and gracious hospitality. Enjoying the FRESH things was a blessing as I am the girl that routinely buys the BAGGED variety....( said in shame)

AND also...thank you to those of you who have sent me links to graphics and such it has been fun browsing and saving them to use in my posts.

Oh, it sounds wonderful!!! I admire ladies who have the talent to make a meal like that from all fresh things . . . BUT I don't have the time or the inclination to do it myself! ;) Don't feel bad for buying the bagged greens; be yourself! And yay for making new friends!!!

Aren't new friends fun? The lunch sounds so good and good for you too! I'm with Susan on this one. My health conflicts with many of my desires! So bagged it is for me most of the time!

Have a blessed weekend!

People like Betty are a blessing. I'm so glad you had such a nice time with her and are getting to know people in your church.
I like your graphic--it's very pretty. Glad you found some. Keep looking as I'm sure there are many more out there.
Have a nice Lord's Day.
