Kudos for ARIZONA Recollections and Reflections

From Gloria in Phoenix . . .

I've been leafing through the beautiful Arizona Recollections and Reflections book you gave me yesterday, and am staggered by the interesting information and wonderful photographs! What a TREASURE! Thank you, beyond words! Gary has also spent an hour with it out on the patio, and was equally as fascinated as I. I can't think of a more wonderful gift.

Also from John in Minneapolis . . . "My father in law was a history teacher. He would have loved this book. Very well done and very interesting."

Governors Luncheon Salad

Wonderful presentation for salad with the thinly sliced cucumber wrapped around the salad greens. Accompanied by tender grilled chicken breast, it was a lovely luncheon for the "Conversation with Arizona's Woman Governors." A great dressing for this salad is found on page 21 Tastes & Treasures cookbook. Strawberry Vinaigrette brings a fresh, summer taste to a traditional salad. Desert followed with a nutty crumb crust on the cheesecake. Very nice.

Governor Rose Mofford received several standing ovations. Rose is considered the perfect Governor to mend fences and move forward. She was the first woman governor in the U.S.A. Rose was joined in the conversation by Governors Jane Hull and Jan Brewer. Janet Napolitano spoke via satellite.
