|Uncle Mike, best prep cook ever, assembling tarts. puff pastry squares filled with caramelized onions, greek cheese and ricotta, and roasted vegetables|
|The beautiful cake that my talented friend Lauren Casper made. If you are in St.Louis check out her food art at Colleen's Cookies . Not only are they beautiful, they taste great too. And all those flowers and hearts around the edge, yup they are cookies too!|
|Dad came home and was surprised! And he loved the cake and baklava|
|The spread: puff pastry tarts, chickpea salad, kale salad, pesto pasta salad with pesto from my folks garden, guac, shrimp, vegetable platter with homemade hummus, and yogurt dip, cheese plate (including a Vermont cheese- had to represent, and surprised I can find the grafton cheddar in STL.)|
|Tarts in the oven!|
