Last month I gave a luncheon in honor of Toby Salk‘s visit to NYC. There were eight of us so we were able to have two tables of MJ. We were also celebrating Gail K’s birthday – for dessert we had a birthday cake along with Mah Jongg party favors. Of course, around the game tables there were lots of snacks and candy! In the excitement of the day, I totally forgot to take photos but Toby did shoot some for me. Hopefully she will send more but here is the first one she sent to me:

We had a great lunch – first a spinach dip with crudités and also a couple of bowls of rosemary cashews followed by a lunch of chilaquiles, guacamole, salsa, and chips plus a salad of chopped lettuce with lots of goodies on top and homemade ranch dressing. And then, after a few hours of game play, the chocolate ganache cake came out and, if I say so myself, it was yummy!

Here’s a photo of the rosemary cashews and the chocolate ganache cake (yum!).

Recipes tomorrow…


Yesterday was Mah Jongg Wednesday for the OMs (at least, for those of us that are here in the city this week!). S1 hosted and it seemed as if we hadn’t seen J in ages – it was so great to be together and catch up. Lunch was so yummy and I could kick myself because I forgot to take pictures. Sanna made a wonderful and very delicious salad along with a platter stacked high of the yummiest tuna and egg salad sandwiches – the perfect summer lunch!

I had such a great winning day and, actually, everyone had multiple wins – we had only one wall game the entire day. Here was my first win with this 369 hand of 333 666 6666 9999.
