On the evening of our 13th wedding anniversary Pete and I treated our four children to a four course dinner. We pretended that we were at a very nice resturant with a dressed up dinnner table and served them waitress style. The kids had a great time.
The dressed up table:
A very special Indian Batik table cloth from Ten Thousand Villages. Wine glasses and special cutlery (the kids enjoyed a sparkling juice).
Here is what we served:
A lovely garden salad with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and topped with marble cheese and a homemade caesar dressing.
A Rachel Rae stoup with sausage and kale (so yummy).
Steak, barbequed to perfection, and steamed green beans.
And to finish off some real vanilla ice cream with home-made berry sauce and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
The dinner took 2 hours to share and we enjoyed every minute. The clean-up on the other hand, well, that was a chore, but part and parcel of the package.
