St. George, Utah

Hello! I just taught a wonderful advanced workshop in beautiful St. George, Utah. St. George is known for it's amazing red rock country. The morning of the workshop, my host, Katherine took me on a splendid hike where we were able to get an extraordinary view of what (her archaeologist friend told her) were the "best petroglyphs in Utah". (I will put up some pictures in a future post). At the summit of our hike, we could see red-rock, tabled mountains for 360 degrees and a snaking stream running in the blue valley below. The view was everything she promised and more.

When we finished, we returned to Katherine's beautiful home and a wonderful group of eager workshop participants arrived. I demonstrated several wonderful recipes including mango and blackberry salad with mint, chocolate-chip-oatmeal (and of course goji berry) cookies, and olive and sun-dried tomato tapenade to name a few.

Here is a great pic of the lively bunch and me!



Always love,
Melissa
(petroglyphs to come soon)

I have your RSS feed come directly to my website so I know when you post something and it is nice to read your writings. It has been since March 28th or so since I was inspired to look you up on the web after over four years. Since that time I have been so inspired by you to get back on a veggie and fruit diet. I have since lost 10 pounds and my gout has since cleared up and I went on a four hour hike today. From your site I have been turned on to Christine Kane and others and I eat a daily helping of GOJI berries as well as other great stuff. Thanks so much!
