As I try to break down these days into posts…I’m doing the best I can to keep things kind of “coherent” in little episodes as they happened in the order that they happened. Even though I write this to share, I am also writing this as my own memoir. I don’t want to leave anything out that I will want to remember later. And time passes so fast and things are so quickly forgotten.
However, I will never forget our Wednesday night dinner at Terri’s house..and how the food and friends and fun just kept coming through the door!
Yep, it’s Alaska! And we had more seafood fare than we could make a dent in, but oh did we try!
I felt so welcome as I was introduced to everyone –like we had been old time friends!
What you see in the first pic is the view from Terri’s balcony deck. Can you imagine? Her house is on pilings right over the water, and the tide comes in and goes out and comes in and goes out and it is ever changing.
I started taking pictures of the food as it came in…..as foil was removed we all oooh’d and ahh’d at the wonderful aromas ---
Diane W’s Macadamia nut encrusted halibut!! OH MY! This was served with a buerre blanc sauce on top…delectible!
Julie’s blueberry cheese cake made with local blueberries! YUM!!!
And at this point I got side tracked and gave up taking pictures until we had all laid out in front of us at the table:
Can you see it all? Yes! Diane U brought King crab legs with garlic butter for drizzling…they melted in my mouth! The wonderful tomato goat cheese salad was made by Val, Lila made the SALMON CHEESECAKE! ((Yes, salmon cheese cake…)) and it was served with crackers like an appetizer…You can see the halibut and the pot of buerre blanc, and Sara’s home made yeast rolls. Debra made a delicious pot of home made clam chowder as well…and we stuffed ourselves silly!
As the sun set into the west, this was again the view from Terri’s deck. What a wonderful evening with new wonderful friends. I never laughed so hard in my life at some of the antics that were going on amongst these women who are such good close friends. I love the sense of community.
Quilters are a force to be reckoned with!
And this was only the end of Wednesday.
Note to self --- next time…bring stretchy pants for weight gain…LOL!
