I know, I know, I haven't posted in almost two weeks and that is nearly a record absence for me. I haven't had the opportunity to get any really good photographs lately and I've been busy helping my wife with a very important event...the local high school prom. Our seventeen year old grand daughter is a junior and went to the prom this year. There were four area high schools that all had their proms scheduled for this past Saturday. Several months ago my wife suggested to the grand daughter that we would host a prom dinner for her and 16 of her friends. It would save them money and since every restaurant in the area would be packed, it would be a much nicer alternative. So, we prepared dinner for 17 prom attendees. This was no back yard picnic. This was the real deal!
A welcome sign created by yours truly is just that, a sign of things to come.
We cleared the living room of most furniture and set a table there. Another table in the entry and, of course the dining room table. We printed menus and place cards for each of our guests.
My wife left no detail undone. The intent was for this to be a special occasion that could not be replicated at any local dining establishment. Mission accomplished. On the menu were grilled strip steaks and chicken, baked potatoes, cheesy ranch potatoes, green beans with brown sugar and bacon, a wonderful mixed greens salad with strawberries and spiced pecans, and of course, a choice of four desserts.
