Tonight’s was Drew’s night with a little help from Rita. Drew made a tremendous volume of delicious grilled salmon with cilantro sauce/marinade, garden-fresh zucchini & quinoa tabbouleh salad.

For appetizers, Britta put to use her 1970’s plastic mushroom canape server. She got it at a yard sale this morning—it was the score of the day— and we all had a good chuckle over the language on the box which promises to hold “scads of canapes, relishes, snacks, olives…(etc.)”

Rita had the brilliant idea to put the kids at a kids table. The 6 kids had a fantastic time on their own, and the grown-up table was so much more manageable with twelve instead of 18. Note to selves.
