And it all came from Aversa’s Italian Bakery in NJ. I took a couple of photos to share with you. And then today, I got all artsy and put textures on them. The jury is still out on some of them, as far as I’m concerned – but that’s not going to stop me from sharing.
I’m adding links to the handwriting textures I used because I just found them today.

There were fresh baked rolls, sliced lunchmeats that included roast turkey, baked ham, roast beef and a provolone cheese with such a heady aroma that it had us all swooning.
Honestly, I rarely eat this sort of thing, so it was a real treat.
Peg had never been here before, so I showed her around the house before we sat down to eat. And guess what? They didn’t want to leave.

So they stayed over!
My husband was actually glad to have them visit. Peg and I headed out to pick up a couple of overnight supplies like toothbrushes, and the fixin’s for some snacks including the one above. It was over-the-top delicious. Tomatoes, sliced mozzarella, shredded basil, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a little salt & peppah.
They even brought dessert. Mexican wedding cookies and cannoli’s.
Thank heavens I’m not on a diet.
Unfortunately, after this weekend, I now need to go on a diet.
Early Sunday morning, I went to the local bagel joint and brought back some plain ones. We toasted them, smeared them with cream cheese, then topped with fresh tomatoes, diced red onions and a little crushed sea salt.
And the heavens sang.

Or maybe it was that little Carolina wren at the kitchen window.

Until tomorrow, all. Thanks for stopping by today.
