Below is Jane holding the bowl of fennel baked with artichokes, onions, bell peppers and lima beans. Why did I go away?
I don't have a photo of the finished product but this looks good enough to eat just as is. Then, what I have been waiting for throughout my days at St. Barbara...and missed...they showed us how to make BAKLAVA. How sweet it is, God's gift to humanity (among other things). Honestly, has anyone ever done an icon of a tray of baklava? I mean no religious disrespect, I love icons. If icons are a way in which one can enter into the mystery and majesty of the divine, well, in my book baklava qualifies.
Thanks Jackie for your photos.
