Nicole, Michelle, George, Charlotte, and I had an exciting morning watching Dan Murphy and Rob Porter arriving to shore with a beautiful 96″ Bluefin Tuna. The tuna meat was given a thumbs up!
Friends, please consider donating to my friend Nicole Duckworth’s fundraiser. She is running the NEDS Falmouth Road Race on Sunday, August 18th, to raise money and awareness of the need for organ donations. NEDS is an acronym for New England Donor Services. She had a wonderfully successful bake sale to raise funds and any additional donation would be tremendously appreciated. Thank you so much! Please donate here.

Nicole Duckworth shares a moment from her wonderfully fun household–never a dull moment with four kids– two teenagers and two toddlers!
Her son Jude this morning, “Mom, I’m turning into a butterfly.”
Jude this summer when he and his brother George stopped by to visit and see the caterpillars and butterflies from our garden.
Nicole and her sweet boys George and Jude stopped by to pick flowers to garnish a beautiful dessert that she had made to surprise two friends who were celebrating their anniversary. This is her croquembouche, a mini version of the larger that she had made for their wedding years ago. Yummmmmm!!!!!
As you may already be aware, Nicole Duckworth makes the fabulous desserts at Duckworth’s Bistrot–her amazing ‘Death-By-Chocolate’ and ‘Banana Cake’ are two favorites that come to mind immediately. She stopped by with a wonderfully tasty maple-walnut-dried cherry granola, possibly the best ever, along with a sweet thank you note. When she has a spare moment, I’ll ask her if she can share the recipe. Our family thanks you Nicole!

Did you make your Valentine’s Day Reservation?
With below average temperature and wicked wind, the 2015 Rocky Neck Polar Plunge Open Door Food Pantry Fundraiser was a plunge to remember. Dru, pictured above and below, reports that it wasn’t too bad running towards, or even diving in. The worst was running back to the beach against the bitter biting blast that had picked up during the event, and the fact that he couldn’t feel his feet!
Hats Off and Congratulations to All You Brave Polar-Plunging Souls!
Dru and Anne Malvaux
Thank you to Dawn and Michelle for inviting me to stay and have a bite of Esme’s wonderful luau birthday feast. John and Dawn prepared the most yummy pulled pork, served on Mandy’s homemade potato rolls, and guests contributed super delicious accompaniments, including the best bean salad, homemade, crunchy coleslaw, and Nicole Duckworth’s to-die-for death-by-chocolate cake.
Friendships, Family, Food, and Pure Fun~ what a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
