Pretty dish

My mom was a good cook. Her specialty was desserts. She made candy, as well as baking cakes, and pies, but she was good a home cooking too. I'm fairly certain she never gave much thought to how the food looked, but I promise I never pushed away anything she put on my plate even if it was ugly.

Jilda, on the other hand, is an artist at heart and she often considers how the finished dish will look.
When our friend Denise visited this past weekend, one of the dishes Jilda prepared was quinoa, with feta cheese, spinach, framed with homegrown cherry tomatoes. It was almost too pretty to eat...but I forced myself.


  1. I'm sure it must have been pretty good eating as well. Sounds wonderful !

  2. I've never seen an ugly steak. Not crazy about quinoa, but it does look good.

  3. Never had quinoa. I bet it taste as wonderful as it looked! Thumbs up to Jilda!

    Looks yummy!!

  5. Yummy, Yummy! I love different cold plates and veggies during the hot summer months. This looks delicious

  6. It looks scrumptious. I can assure you I would not have second thoughts about digging into that one even though it is pretty.

  7. I definitely like the looks of that. And Yep, I do like a pretty dish, but I do not pass up many dishes.

    BUT artists will produce ART!

  8. We eat first with our eyes, and that dish is lovely to look at.
