|Gretchen’s Fish Chowder oh my gosh, just heavenly, I would love a bowl right now. Gretchen is an amazing cook and baker, everything she makes is made with love. She made about 5 gallons of soup! There were 4 of us! My kind of cook! Are you sure you aren’t Italian Gretchy?|
|Dave’s amazing homemade French bread. Now I wouldn’t say I was a such bread snob, okay well I am…so when Dave says he is going to bake bread, I am first in line. Laura and Dave are always so generous and deliver loaves piping hot out of the oven, you have to be quick if you want a slice, which I always do slathered with fresh churned butter, not that I make that or anything, a girl can dream, right? Don’t leave the bread unattended at any time, B Zach is in the house!|
|Pull up a sofa and and a book!! No way, there will be lots of laughing, scrumptious food and dancing and singing, it’s Girls Night out!!|
|Okay! So when we are together it’s not all about the food, well for me it is…but my other passion besides food is dancing and we did lots of it with Dance Revolution!!|
|Artichoke Spinach Cream Cheese Dip – After dancing app!|

Sing, sing, sing until you throat is so sore from yelling, you think it’s singing until you play the video that Meredith taped, thank you so much Meredith for opening your home to all of us, I had a most wonderful time!
