We Couldn’t Stop Eating It

Dinner at my sister’s place in New York, with her family and Angeline Martyn. Mir Mo Ga just ‘threw together’ some dishes, on a work night, out of what she had in the fridge. Delicious!

She May Be the Cutest

Squeezed a LOT into this NJ / NY writing weekend, including a dinner with my sister’s family.
