Pictures from our FOS dinner last night

Working on this Italian Dinner kept me busy for a few days. I really think that maybe I was a caterer/baker/famous chef or something in another life! I love baking/cooking for mass amounts of people. I like the satisfaction of watching them eat and enjoy their food. It means a lot.

24 loaves of french bread I made for the dinner.
Our wonderful church gym all decorated with an Italian flair.

I also made some super yummy forever tasty Italian Style Bean Soup. I added some of my own additions and everyone that ate it LOVED it! I had actually tagged it for the Aussie/New Zealand swap I am part of and knew we had this dinner coming up. So quadrupled the recipe and now there are mass reviews! I will post the recipe on my Dinner Blog.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
