Desaturated Saturday - A Culinary Gallery - Week #23

Black and White Wednesday came a little late this week. Thanks so much for your great photos and patience while I endured a rather nasty bit of the flu. It's quite possible that given my delirium that I have made errors or omissions. If that is the case, please drop me a comment, and I will make the correction/s. For the moment, though, I'm pleased to present this last gallery of 2011 until we meet again on January 4, 2012. God willing it will be a Wednesday.
