What is a fleur-de-lis? Why did I make a fleur-de-lis themed lunch?
What: A fleur-de-lis is an artistic form of the lily or iris flowers. In French, fleur means flower, and lis means lily. It has been used for decoration and as a symbol with many different meanings.
Why: The fleur-de-lis became personal to me when we bought our house many years ago. The previous owners painted the symbol as decoration on our side porch. When I browsed a large cookie cutter collection at a store and found a fleur-de-lis shape, I had to get it and the idea for this lunch was born.
