Kathy cooked! I love it when that happens! Seeing that its the first weekend back after Christmas Break a pot luck was in order. Angie graciously invited everyone over to her place. I had work at the diner until late so Kathryn got started on our contribution to the pot luck: JAMBALAYA.

The food at the pot luck was so fresh and delicious. Ms Angie made  salmon fillets, Mitchell brought a nice salad with homemade dressing, Dana made her infamous artichoke dip, someone made mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy……kind of a weird combo of dishes, but it all tasted good. The pot luck spanned the entire evening with friends coming in and out. Lots of laughing and story telling and catching up was necessary after a month of vacation. And there is no better way to catch up than with a pot luck and about 8 bottles of wine.
