Top Ten Twitter Tweets of May 19, 2018

Are you like me—wondering how the month can slip by so fast? This weekend is dedicated to friends and cooking. Both my “co-cooking” foodie groups gather at my home. Friday’s theme was I Left My Heart and Taste Buds in San Francisco. Saturday is In Celebration of Basil. All dishes must have the flavor of the theme in them. I create cioppino and Caesar salad (one of our favs in SF) and on Saturday, a grilled pesto shrimp and Thai chicken. Yummers!
