"A good time was had by all"
After a week of restaurant and fast food, the family was treated to a nice home-cooked meal! Barry and Donna graciously hosted our family in their home - the candles were set, classical music in the background, a variety of drinks available, trays of fruit and cheese, as well as an entire dinner were waiting for us when we arrived.
Earlier in the day we'd be caught out in the cold and wet of an unseasonable Southern California storm - so spent the day in the Long Beach Aquarium - but that evening we had a warm inviting home to dine in.
Split pea soup, a 'committee salad' and chicken/rice with grilled fresh veggies rounded out the meal. Then the finale capstone was a 'special' winner of an Ice Cream Barry had found - a Raspberry Chocolate that we all enjoyed so much we even had seconds.
Thanks Barry and Donna for an unforgettable evening!
