A few weeks ago I concocted a crazy plan to have a formal dinner in honor of Valentines Day. Since Garry and I had a dinner-and-movie date planned for Thursday, our fancy feast was on Sunday. We borrowed a tablecloth and got out our china and crystal for the very first time (they were wedding gifts). Some last-minute plan changes stressed me out, but the dinner ended up being fun and tasty.
We ate heart-shaped chicken pot pie, raspberry cream salad, red Jell-o, and Sprite chilled with Koolaid ice cubes. We enjoyed a pazookie and ice cream for dessert.
And guess what? No one broke any of the china or crystal! We might do this again sometime.
