We had the wonderful opportunity to serve over twenty members of the local missionary and e-pat community a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner recently. It was such a blessing for everyone that was involved. Our staff had matching uniforms, and did a wonderful job serving the four-course meal which Jen and Mary created. Jen brought special items back from the US to make things extra-special. She was sick on the day of the meal though, and didn’t even get to taste it. =(
It was a really special event. We had linen tablecloths, candles on the tables and so much food, everyone was stuffed. The reviews were terrific, and everyone asked if we’d do it again. I think four-course meals might just become a regular (monthly?) thing if we can sustain it.
I was especially proud of Mary for accommodating two gluten-allergic guests. This is so hard to do, since we can’t get the right flour easily.
Here’s some photos from the event and the PDF of the menu is here.
