Sunday night we were invited to our friends’ home for what will likely be the first in a string of goodbye dinners. I almost always have anxiety about going out somewhere to eat and will obsess for days about it. However, when we go to this particular house for dinner, I never have to worry. Our hostess has done training in holistic nutrition and is mainly vegetarian. She even cooks as part of her business: Great Greens & Grains.
We started with cocktails and some apps (unpictured bread, cheese, fruit and salmon canapes) and eventually moved to the table for a fantastic dinner.
She even made a special dessert (her husband’s favorite according to him).
Delicious! This woman can cook. I’m truly going to miss seeing them and eating her wonderful meals.
Hubs also used the dinner to present the guys he works with their long-awaited Christmas presents. In their biz, they work on these deals for what can be years and when the deal is finally complete, many times they will receive “deal toys.” It’s like a little fun reminder of the case. They didn’t get one in this particular case so Hubs thought it would be cool to design the toys and have them made for his co-workers. They were surprised and just plain happy.
It’s hard to move away from people you’ve grown to really care about. Here’s hoping that it won’t be our last dinner with them. I’m preferring to look at this situation not so much as goodbye, but rather, see you later.
