Last Wednesday I threw a china and jeans impromptu dinner party.  Against my natural instincts, I prepared the party as my next entry to Project Food Blog 2010, before I knew whether I’d advanced to the next round or not.  I am amongst the world’s most superstitious people.  And of course, I jinxed myself and […]
