On This Date in 1998

Here it is a couple days into the workweek and I haven’t finished this letter. This will probably be a quick wrap-up. 

We literally feasted on Saturday night at the Vandoroses. Eileen prepared quite a meal. The appetizers included avocado cream cheese/scallion dip with corn chips, tsatziki cucumber/yoghurt dip with sourdough bread, Tunisian vegetable phyllo pastries, and greens & gruyere phyllo pastries. These were followed with an African peanut chicken soup, unusual but very tasty. The salad course was a Greek salata with feta cheese. We were served two main courses: a vegetarian lasagna and lamb and artichoke avgolemono with rice. We allowed some time to pass before eating dessert, which was a pumpkin cream cheese torte. We didn’t get home until 11:45. The boys had fallen asleep in our bedroom, the only room of the house that was dark. Otherwise, they had turned on every single light. 

For JoAnna’s birthday, we cooked out, even though the warm weather had left us. In fact, while the steaks were on the grill, the serving plate was collecting a layer of snow. Baked potatoes, steamed broccoli, and a tossed salad completed the meal. We had carrot cake and ice cream for dessert. JoAnna thanks you for the jewelry; she really likes it. And she’s very pleased with the athletic club membership I gave her. She left for Two Rivers around 5:30 and will be back home tomorrow evening.

Well, I want to get this letter in the mail before the end of the day. We send you our love.
