Dinner in Catalina

25 Apr

Last night, all of the Peterson kids (minus Jordan, he was working), Lydia and I headed up to Catalina to Grandma and Grandpa Peterson’s house to see Brian MacDonald (SP?). Let me see if I can explain the family ties…Jordan’s Dad is cousin to Brian’s wife. Simple enough? It was neat to see a professional chef in a home setting. We all enjoyed his culinary expertise and stories. I was quite thrilled to find out that he had attended the Culinary Institute of America. We had a lovely evening up in the Catalina Mountains, with a very wonderful dinner, thanks to Aunt Becky, Grandma and Grandpa Peterson, and Brian.

Beautiful color!

    I really think Austin looks guilty and I’ve seen him eat, so it’s entirely possible!

    And Chloe snitching! Can you imagine the shame of it… unless she’s the cook and then I grant LOTS of grace. hee hee

      She was the chef on the dessert, so I thought it was great that she was *cough* tast testing it. :p
