Joan Champie dinner2 300x225Slavic Spread

I received these photos from my friend Joan in Ohio. After reading Who Is to Blame, these Yellow Springs gals put together a multi-course meal of traditional Russian food.  An unbelievable feast!  What I wouldn’t give to have been able to share that culinary evening with them!
