WooHoo...it was a huge success!

phoggie

Today I had 16 wonderful widowed ladies come to my home for my GALentine’s Brunch and we ate, laughed, shared memories and enjoyed each other’s company! I hope they all felt that, although none of us still have our husbands here with us anymore, they are still loved. Since I have severe hand tremors, with the help of some of those who accept my handicap, I managed to prepare and serve fried potato/ sausage/cheese casserole, spinach quiche, sheet pan French toast, baked cheese sandwich casserole, bran/banana muffins, cherry turnovers, yogurt/fruit parfaits, cranberry/strawberry drink and coffee. They must have left full because there wasn’t much left over! ♥️

I have to ask. What is a cheese sandwich casserole? You have a wonderful tradition going here. What a great idea.

I am just thrilled for you and your friends that you have each other and can celebrate one another. It sounds like such a wonderful time and although you're probably exhausted, the warm memories and the laughter of the day will be fun to have.

Happy Galentines Day, phoggie. It sounds like you are a wonderful friend.

Congratulations! You had an original, great idea, and you made it work! No small feat! It sounds wonderful, and I'll bet there are 16 ladies in your area that are very appreciative of you and will be talking about this event for a long time to come!
