Cobb salad update

Successful b-day party for my mom. She had a great time on her cruise and came home ready for more festivities for her 85th birthday. I swear, she looks younger than I do--85 years old just doesn't seem that old to me now.

My version of the classic Cobb salad turned out well. I adapted Barefoot's viniagrette recipe by adding a little honey. I used chicken breasts, a mix of regular bacon and pancetta, tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, blue cheese, and avocado on a bed of chopped greens (romaine and bibb lettuce). I made scones (of course!) and my niece brought two beautiful loaves of home-baked rosemary/garlic bread. My sister brought a cake with raspberry between the layers. Quite lovely!
