Great turnout and what a GREAT group of teens to work with! They were great at getting all the food onto the serving line and getting everything cleaned up. There were so many families in the house and all we kept hearing was "thank goodness it isn't spaghetti" and "the food is so good". Apparently they had had spaghetti 4 nights in a row! I have to vouch for the fact that the food was REALLY good, as we all ate dinner once the guest were fed! Maybe we will change up the menu for next month...maybe not!
