How I spent my Memorial Day weekend...
Our local arts council puts on a Blues Fest, and so this year I thought we would try a booth. We served gumbo, alligator on a stick, sushi, pie in a cup and good sodas. By the end of Sunday I had dished up nearly 125 gallons of gumbo, 60 pounds of gator and 80 sushi rolls. But that wasn't the end of it.
I catered a 60th wedding anniversary for the Zapatas. The family came in from all across the country so they asked for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. For a cake I made a berry mousse and campari soaked genoise decorated with a callow lilly to honor their original wedding cake. But that wasn't all.
We hosted a Fairy Princess Tea Party for a 6 year old and her friends. This pic is before most of the guests arrived. And so now on Memorial Day monday, I rest. I hope everyone has a great one.
