    You gave us too many gorgeous, delicious dishes upon which to comment! They all look fantastic and I can’t decide which I would want to sample first. Ok, that’s entirely not true. The crabmeat cheesecake calls my name. Then those potato boats. Both look divine. Well, the mushrooms also. Who can resist mushrooms wrapped in bacon? Beautiful dishes.
