Abernethy elementary school is having a fundraiser to help pay for a full time music teacher. I thought I'd donate a meal for them to auction. Quite a few other gustations are up for auction. A candlelit dinner by Chef Nicole and her parents in the gorgeous garden of wonders; a wine tasting by Brandi Nash sampling 24 boutique Willamette wines; a bourbon party at Jonathon Radmacher's house; a walking dinner tour in Ladd's Addition!

I took this photo as an illustration of the dinner I might make, to put on the auction site. It's not literal of course. I was thinking of those Dutch still lives and was looking at some on a great site I discovered, the web gallery of art.
