Flooding with Friendship

It is hard to think of hosting a party as you walk through Whitefish Bay and see the  basement treasures of so many people on the curb. The flooding made a mess for a lot of residents. Our basement was ok but looking at all of the loss has encouraged me to clean out my basement and keep only what I use and not what I will someday use. I had stored chargers that I bought for a great deal to use for Christmas or Valentine's day  - still stored and never used after 5 years while my daughters American Girl Dolls were on the floor. Time to reorganize. I would hate to lose those dolls.

Flood your neighbors with friendship by inviting them to dinner. Here is a quick and easy recipe that is yummy and peaches are perfect right now.
