Dan & Nan Visit

Friday Dan and Nancy came to visit.  We have not seen them in a couple months so we were long overdue for a visit.   Friday evening I wanted to make a special dinner to celebrate all the special occasions that have occurred over the last couple months (Dan’s Birthday, Nancy’s Birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and their Anniversary).   I was trying to figure out a way to celebrate all the special occasions with only one cake (I don’t think 4 people needed 5 different cakes).  So Eric and I came up with the idea of makeing little flags to put on the cake! 

Salad: Balsamic Bacon Spinach
Appetizer: Bacon Wrapped BBQ Shrimp
Entrée: Chicken Cordon Blue, Season Potatoes, and Fresh Steamed Asparagus
Dessert: Carrot Cake
We had a wonderful visit.  I think we spent most of our time talking about the newest edition Benjamin James Strobel (he has brought so much joy to our family).  We are excited about his upcoming baptism!
