A special night!
Some of you know I was having a Dinner Party on saturday evening! Every year SNU ( Southern Nazarene University) has a big Auction at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. The money we raise goes towards Scholarships for children who are not able to pay the tuition for the summer school classes SNU offers. It is a wonderful camp. Every year I give a dinner for 8 in my home for one of the Live Auction items.......... So this was the dinner. Here are a few pictures I took...I did not take as many photos as I would of liked but here are a few.......
The menu was:
Appetizers: Stuffed Dates with Pecans wrapped with Bacon & Pimento Cheese Spread with Crackers & Celery
Herb crusted Cornish Game Hens
Mushroom Wild Rice
Dilled Steamed Carrots
Frozen Raspberry/Cranberry Mousse
Parmesan Basil Rolls
Chocolate Creme Brulee
I thought it might be fun to have their names written in chocolate........I only had one of them break but I made backups just in case.......it was a great ending and I hope they had a fun evening in our home!
I would not of made it if it wasn't for these two...........As I cooked and plated up they were picking up dishes, washing dishing, filling glasses with ice and drinks, making sure everyone had plenty of food. While I was taking pictures and running around they kept me going and the guests...... I had made photo books of the evening for all 5 couples and wanted them to take a little something home , so while I was copying photos these two kept the dinner going! And can you believe I did not get pictures of their books......sorry! It was crazy but we made it and I am thankful for my sweet husband and sweet friend Susan who made this night go smoothly! Thanks you two!
It is now Monday and a new week...........have a good one!
