My cousin and I broke out some entertaining show stoppers in honor of some lovely ladies visiting this past weekend. One of these amazing women was passing through on her way back home from Africa after spending a month volunteering with Mothers Without Borders. This organization provides safe shelter, food, and education to orphans, whose abandonment is predominantly due to the death of HIV-infected parents. Ultimate luxury (in this case, fresh peaches!) is most enjoyed in such loving company.
1 pint ginger ale (I suggest a good quality micro-brewed soda)
candied ginger for garnish
- and watermelon/cilantro
No Fuss Classy Cheese Plate
1 wedge high quality blue cheese
1 dozen ripe fresh figs, halved
