Two Thumbs Up for Meals on Wheels Five-Star Night this April 27

Host Narsai David (center) and participating chefs
 I am a big support of Alameda County Meals on Wheels and its wonderful fundraiser - Five-Star Night. Check out the local restuarants that will be providing the food as well as the menu.

 (FYI - my support for the dinner has absolutely NOTHING to do with my husband and I winning some fabulous raffle prizes at the dinner.)

Here is a copy of their news release on the event. I will post more about Meals on Wheels and the benefit soon.  Hope you will support this great organization in whatever you can.  Don't live in Alameda County? Find your local Meals on Wheels at
