Foodie Friday and Everything Else

Welcome to Foodie Friday and Everything Else.

It's picnic season. 
What could be easier that gilding a deli-roasted chicken?

Stuffed eggs are traditional (and delicious).

For dessert, melon and cookies.

Or a blueberry basil galette.

I'll return this weekend with a renovation diary update.

Picks from last week's party.
