Working Meetings

2011 brought many new friends into my life.  Recently, a few of them came over for coffee, which soon approached lunch.  What better time to try out a new recipe on new friends?

In fact, many who work with me will tell you that my kitchen is my office, and I love to cook and experiment during work meetings.  So, anyone who attends one of my working meetings will end up being a guinea pig for a new recipe at some point.  Today’s new recipe- Bacon, Spinach and Pear Sandwich with Cranberries and Red Wine Sauce I believe got the thumbs-up for approval.
