(Aunt) Cora & Company

Coming from a family who had a catering business, I really am blessed to have married into another family who appreciates and respects food as I do. Today was once again a delicious family gathering at my Aunt Cora's. Just as I expected, my Aunt Cora had quite a feast... that included some specialties of other family members. Here are pics of our Labor Day table:

  1. Wow looks like quite the spread!

  2. wow, that looks amazing. I'm especially curious about the banana eggrolls. Those look yummy.

  3. Joelen, seriously, I think you need to adopt me!

  4. Joelen, I love your blog. And I love the banana eggrolls (they looks so delicious), they remind me of the ones I would get at an Asian grocery store back in Great Lakes on Greenbay Road. I thought they were meat filled lumpia but got a pleasant surprise when I bit into it.
