Catered by the Men

This weekend we had our first Grace Elizabeth’s planning meeting. Saturday was full of brainstorming and decision making. You may notice we changed our look (one of the many outcomes of our meeting). Because the four women were hard at work, the two men lucky enough to be around (our father and my husband) catered our food. By the way they fed us BOTH lunch and dinner. Aren’t they awesome? Their lunch menu: Macaroni Cheese Soup and Garlic Grilled Asparagus. Their dinner menu: Grilled Chicken Fajitas and Spanish Rice.

They are allowing me to share one recipe with all of you!
