A Fun Night!

Well, for those of you who missed it, the annual Valentine's Banquet has come and gone. It was a "Caribbean Sunset" with steel drum music, a Carribean Cooler (coconut milk, pineapple juice, lemonade and raspberry lemonade), crab cakes with salsa, coconut shrimp dipped in a pina colada sauce, jerk steak, ribs, tuna, fish, key lime pie, and much, much more!

If anyone went away hungry, it was their own fault! There was a feast for all of them! As wait staff, we were dressed in Hawaiian shirts, with khakis, sandles and flowers in our hair (guys had hats). I served drinks all night, water, coffee, etc. to almost 200 people. Steve worked in the kitchen as usual.

It was great having RBC up as our dish crew - they were kept busy and did a GREAT job.

We also saw many RBC folks - Bergmans, Dave & Gretchen Rich, Harv & Holly Rich, the Christensens, and others. Many people were also there from our area churches here and even folk just from the area who don't belong to a church.

Michael Lane gave a good message to round off the night.

Hopefully when things get calmed down a bit and we recover from the long weekend, I can catch Janet Merkel and get a few of the recipes to post...and find some pictures.
