  1. A wonderful meal! Simplicity rules.

    Happy Holidays and best wishes for 2015!



  2. What a gorgeous and colorful meal. The styling and composure is spectacular, yet simple, proving simplicity rules. Not a bad way to think about life as well as food.

    Happy holidays Val and thank you for being my friend.

  3. Happy Holidays to you and yours..

  4. Everything looks amazing and thanks for the mention. Those carrots! I could eat the whole dish. Merry Christmas, Val and Happy New Year.

  5. Merry Merry Christmas, Val! Thrilled about your Mexico trip and cannot wait to read all about it... my first grandchild is due third week of February, so I will be in seventh heaven most of next year, too! Much love to you and your family!

  6. What a great meal, Val! Happy Holidays!

  7. Merry Christmas, Val! A lovely array of Christmas ideas.

  8. So many scrumptious things, Val. Those carrots are calling my name. :-)

  9. So much food! All of it is so beautiful. You have an interesting definition of "simple'. :-)

    I am sitting here trying to get my menu ready for the big performance at 5PM this afternoon. Nothing I'm cooking is complicated, but getting it all cooked and putting it on the table seems like a fear worthy of Stephen Hawking's brain.

  10. Simple, but so fancy looking!
