photo source'Tis the season . . . to be married. My refrigerator is covered in wedding invitations, save-the-dates, shower invites, and a general smattering of happy couples about to enter marital bliss. (I keep wondering if I can throw myself a "Yea! I'm single!" shower, and get lots of fabulous kitchen ware.) I do have one favorite couple, Kristin and Brian. They are getting married this month, and they are my lifelong friends. We've got two artists on our hands: Brian a painter/printmaker and Kristin a writer/poet/publisher extraordinaire. (Check out one of Brian's recent prints below. It shows one of our beloved Brooklyn views.)I love them, and I loved their recent wedding shower they just had in their new Brooklyn apartment. The food was delicious, and this Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus flew off the trays in about 5 seconds. It was easy, classy and delicious.
