Spring In Texas!

The latest Food Creates Community dinner was quite an adventure for both the chefs and the participants. But what a reward!

Saturday started off rainy, wet and miserable with all of us praying for sunshine. By Saturday afternoon, it was balmy and beautiful! Welcome to Spring in Texas!

With the largest crowd to date (36 hungry attendees), the backyard setting was again the ideal location to gather. It was wonderful to see many people that remembered each other from previous FCC dinners.

The community of food lovers that are attending these events have been extremely supportive of the FCC efforts and vocal about their experiences through emails, blog entries and informal chats. Please continue to give us your feedback and thoughts to help make these dinners wildly successful each and every time!!

  1. Wow! Everything looks so good. And what a beautiful evening! So sorry I had to miss out :-( But, crutches, damp backyard and pain killers would have spoiled alot more than the soup. Looking forward to a cool summer time dinner next!
