Second Sunday!

It was another great Sunday dinner with terrific friends and neighbors.  Once a month, Stan and I open our home to those in our neighborhood for dinner as an opportunity for people to meet. become friends and unify our community.

If you come to my house while I’m cooking and preparing for 2nd Sunday you will find me in my lovely and very fashionable hair net (heehee) because I dread the thought of someone getting someone unexpected in their food – my hair.

Do you like my apron?   This and the one I wear on the picture on my cookbook were both provided by Flirty Aprons (click HERE for information). Dec 2013 Second Sunday   Hair nets available on Amazon – hahaha

Stan is always a help, and as my sous chef, I had him toasting the marshmallows on the chocolate cookies.  He was able to play with fire, what’s better to a guy then that!

May I challenge you during the month to do something to serve your neighbors, which in turn, strengthens your own family.   Bake cookies and deliver to a few families, sing carols, anything your family can do to show love to others, which is a gift that lives on.
