I recently catered a birthday party for 40. Ok, photography is not my best hobby but at least it's in focus! It was a birthday celebration and I realized I catered another birthday milestone for this client, 10 years ago! THAT party was really awesome. I'll never forget my husband lugging100 pounds of ice if not more, in the trunk of his car for the 'raw bar' we created with a plastic swimming pool. Those were the days when I was so nervous about having everything ready and photography was the very last thing on my mind. If it was even in my mind!

Old Orchard ( as it's affectionately known to us locals) has a new restaurant that boasts 18 food stations and locally grown food. Note the second to the last picture- 'Product of USA'- so, they can say it's locally grown. Old Orchard is a shopping mall in Skokie on Skokie Blvd. Here are a few pics I snapped with my new smart phone ( I've never had one) and it took me all afternoon to figure out how to do this!

So, we have been on our new abode for two weeks. And it has taken so long to post much. With some big events, in addition to the move, behind us, I wanted to post some pictures of the lovely things we found growing in our back yard.
I don't know much about gardening and vegetables. My friend Charlotte told me the cucumbers were curling because they haven't had enough water. Oh. I thought I had been checking on them...we did get 3 cucs from the garden- such a delicious texture! We're hoping we can still get some more.
