Unplugging Traditional Dinner Parties

Tired of the same old, same old dinner parties with all their uncertainties?

I think you will love her idea too. As she says, when you plan around fresh garden produce, people who accept the invitation come because they want to: “No one clears their calendar for zucchini.”


I think you’ll enjoy reading the seven paragraphs of her “Picks of the social season.” To read her article, CLICK HERE.
