Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table …

Matilda, fancies herself my 24/7, 364-days-a-year head kitchen witch. But for her, those 364 days a year are pretty much spent as the keeper and protector of my kitchen.

Since there are still 11 days left until gremlins, ghosts, witches and wanna-bes come out to play, I thought I would give you a sneak preview of what one of my food stations will look like before the fog machines take over. This is when everyone will need to step lightly. Why? Hmmm, I guess you have never met “the hand” … the one with a life of its own.
