Hors d'oeuvres

My friend the Oyster resists vegetables. She will occasionally eat green things if she feels it would be impolite to the hostess not to (she is wonderfully polite and diplomatic) but she doesn't groove naturally on chlorophyll. So, when preparing an hors d'oeuvre to contribute to her cheese tasting, I thought of this sneaky way to get some greens into her diet.

I wrapped the fresh pineapple slices and baby arugula in strips of prosciutto. Sweet, salt, mildly bitter, they went fast. How was I to know she'd serve spinach salad, too, and make my greens gesture unnecessary?

Yah Hah! "Bozone Layer." I like the calendar, even if it's plain. It does the work.

Also, your dishes for cocktail parties are so SWANK.

Peter M, gee, thanks. Made my day!

Cookiecrumb, I thought you'd get a chuckle from the Bozone! The dish is new, present from my DC brother and his wife. Cool, huh?
