  1. I went to a Great Greek Restaurant in Philadelphia last week. The food was absolutely fantastic. The had a great signature dessert. Home made Sorbets in the same frozen fruits. I had the lemon for dessert that night. It was Lemon Sorbet served in a frozen gutted Lemon, served in a dish of whipped cream, with honey drizzled over all. The next day before I went home I stopped by for the Peach. The nice thing about the Peach is you can eat the fruit it’s in. Well, I’m going on. I wanted to tell you thank you for the Potato Salad Recipe, can’t wait to make it.
