my dear wilma was visiting from paris last month and i was so delighted to have her over for dinner.  she is an absolute luvFAB cook and she has taught me much about cooking. as i wanted to make her a memorable dinner, i asked her what she would enjoy.  she said she had only one request–make it light.  i served several dishes, all light, and the mela-melo salad was a favourite.  ‘make it light’ turned out to be the best request for thebestdressup now!
