Several months ago my well group leader invited all of her girls to a Ladies' Father-Daughter dinner. It was by far the most extravagent and wonderful event I have ever attended. Elaine did all of the designing, arranging, and cooking, and other familiar faces served as waiters and butlers. It was a delightful evening with our fathers and each other. The food was glorious.
I wish I had photos of the meal - it would astound you. Hopefully I will soon! Elaine is a self-taught master chef with an artist's eye. My favourites were the stacked caprese salad and the creme brulee.
It was a lavish dinner; a gift.
A year of faithful leading and time and driving and loving, and one evening of sacrificial cooking.
