  1. Well done you! So this is what you have been so hectically busy with. While doing FBI2011 paperwork I have seen some of the facebook updates and was wondering, been so out of the loop with everyone’s news lately….so so thrilled for you my sweet friend. I hope this is going to open up a whole new world for you. Go have fun with your catering today. Hugs xx

  2. Fantastic Cindy 🙂 What a fun to do catering for a photo shoot…., my brother does quite a bit of specialised catering at times, he has the best time of it too. Can’t wait to hear how it all went 😉

      • My bro got asked to do catering for a wine dinner at someone’s winery for about a dozen well clad gentlemen…, they loved it so much they get together 4 times a year & ask Kris back to cater & wine match (& pay him very well too), definatly a career in private cheffing. Best of luck with it all Cindy – its all about word of mouth isn’t it?

  3. You look so professional with that Pesto Princess apron! The menu is great: I especially adore breakfast. Well, good luck (but I’m sure you’ll do a great job!!!) 😀

  4. oh..THAT’s the army you were feeding! was wondering who on earth you were cooking for… it all sounds terribly delicious Cin!

  5. What a spread – Lucky them! Me, I can only drool enviously. 🙂 Love that apron on you, and you know, you have a bit of a look of the cat that swallowed the canary… 😉

  6. How absolutely cool 😀 And I LOVE your blog’s awesome new look, Cin (although probably not that new since I’ve been so abysmally out of touch)!
