The Delight of the Party

I said I'd bring an appetizer.

The hostess didn't even have to ask me. I volunteered!

It was an amazing vision. Spending the afternoon whipping up mouth-watering deliciousness. Walking through the door with a masterpiece.

What about Goat Cheese with Fresh Dill and Paprika?

Or Pioneer Woman's Mushrooms Stuffed with Brie?

Maybe Apricots Stacked with Blue Cheese, Pistachios and Honey?

What was I thinking?

On Friday I tagged and dropped off books for a book sale, attended a high school graduation meeting, took a child to a basketball tournament, and treated 4 children to a movie.

On Saturday I did the bi-weekly grocery shopping, attended a seminar on children's cognitive differences, dropped in on a friend's art show, and cleaned bathrooms.

And when did I think I was going to come up with this heavenly confection???

Instead, 10 minutes before the party found me washing mounds of strawberries, plunking them on a platter, and sliding a glass of powdered sugar in the middle.

And guess what was the delight of the party??

Pretty hard to improve on God's amazingly delicious creation!
