An older couple in our church invited us over to their house for lunch today. It was a very nice meal, and a delightful time of fellowship. They had also invited another couple as well as us.
The meal was very good. When I have company, I can never think of what to make, and usually end up making a main dish, vegetables, rolls, and maybe dessert--if I'm in the mood to make dessert. :) But she had really outdone herself--baked chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, a vegetable dish, rolls, cranberry salad, and a jello salad. It was all delicious! For dessert, she made carrot cake, and put two slivers of raw carrots on the top. It looked really cute!
Since Kevin and I have been in our new church, we've been in three people's homes for dinner, and when Kevin had a class one evening, I was invited over to one of the ladies' houses for dinner. Having people over is almost rare these days, and it has indeed been rare for us to be invited over to someone's home, but this church has proved itself to be very friendly and hospitable!
