"A new place"

"A-nother new place"
Roasted veggies
 Today is the second day of the alphabet challenge, the letter "A." I decided to do whatever I wanted and fit in the letter, but then it appeared that I created a new place so the "A" worked for that. Sewn pieces of paper to a topo map which was then glued onto a piece of cardboard from a cracker/biscuit box.
Sultan's Nest





The colorful maps are from a map of London that my friend Andrea sent to me. This card has a tiny A on the map already so that worked for the alphabet project.









I promised some photos of food from our New Orleans trip. Here's what I ate at The Green Goddess restaurant on Exchange Alley. It's a tiny place, no reservations, the chef comes out to chat with the patrons, the cooking goes on right near you in a teeny, tiny space, and the whole place smells of delicious cooking.





The dessert is pistachio ice cream, topped with a nest of philo dough, some whipped cream and some honey sauce. Yum!! We shared this one.
