Veggie Flowers

Two of my co-workers gave me this beautiful flower arrangement today as a pre-B-Day gift! Thank you Beth and Lisa! Aren't they gorgeous? I just LOVE that there's an artichoke in the center and limes around the perimeter. After the flowers are gone, we'll be able to boil the artichoke and dip the leaves in lime juice. Perfect!
I'm taking tomorrow off from work. I'll be zooming all over the City enjoying myself.
Last night, my dear friend, Rhoda took me to dinner at Pete's Cafe and Bar in downtown L.A. in the old Financial District at 4th and Main St. Everything was divine. We started with the Mac 'n Cheese....it was creamy and delish. Rhoda ordered the Hellman Burger...faboo with French fries served in a silver cup! I ordered the stuffed pork shop...equally divine. For dessert we had bread pudding that was out of this world! I was in quite a sugar shock for the remainder of the evening. More about presents later!

The flowers are beautiful. Do you know where they are from? Then there is the matter of the food.....it looks amazing!! I don't eat meat and all it looks so delicious. I must venture downtown and check this place out.
