As you know, I'm a regular reader of Cup of Joe, Joanna Goddard's blog. I had to share her very inspiring post that included cooking, great photography, wine and what seemed to be, good company. All the important things in life right?! According to Joanna's post, photographer Karen Mordechai invites people into (what looks like) her amazing home to cook a fantastic meal led by a chef. I scrolled through the post to find a fellow Skidmore Grad (go liberal arts!) who started the delicious artisan ice cream truck Van Leeuwen seen here with his wife and business partner. I don't remember him from school but it's always inspiring to hear about someone from my college who paved their own way and took an interesting path. For more photos and the full blog post about the event, check out Joanna and Karen's blog and hopefully it will give you some ideas for Memorial Day celebration fare.
