Time to Entertain
My contribution to Cinzia's Black and White Wednesday #84 hosted this week by Simona of Briciole. Simona will have her culinary gallery online tomorrow, Wednesday, May 22. Simona is accepting photographs until her clock strikes 12:00 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time. Depending where you are in the world, there may still be time to join in. For full details on how to participate and/or host future galleries, click through to Cinzia's page. Ci would love to welcome you as hostess. I think I'll drop her a line myself to sign up for another stint. I've been out of the blog loop too long, and expect to drop back in more frequently as my professional and personal demands ebb and flow.
I hope you are very well, looking forward to the bounty of the summer and the conviviality of family and friends feasting at your tables.

A local institution, The Colonial Diner is one of the last hold-outs for keeping the glow of neon going twenty-four hours a day. With its concave stainless and enameled ceiling curved over vinyl, wine-colored upholstery and intricate tiling, it is a retro treat to stop in, even if only for a piece of pie and a cup of Joe.
This is my contribution to BWW #78, to be presented Wednesday, April 10, Indian time by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen. Aparna, a very talented photographer with that elusive taste for black and white culinary shots, is guest hosting for Cinzia of Cindystar. Ci is the stylish, relatively new hostess of this event whom I carefully vetted to assume the role vacated by me some months ago after my long run as creator. It truly delights me that there are enough of us who appreciate the unique beauty of culinary shots stripped of their colors. Just don't ever call us geeks; "Say Cheese" instead. ; )
