Tom and Doris Enos, planned and prepared a barbecue dinner for us all.
Tom slaved all day at the pit. Doris slaved all day at the stove.
The rest of us just ate and ate to our utter delight.

The final night was the Mazzarella's turn. Mazz and Irene planned and prepared a Mexican meal to compare with any Mexican meal you will ever eat. We watch the preparation of the
Steak and pork with utter fascination. We are so fortunate to have our great chefs.
We are grateful for their generous nature and great talent.
This was not a Pot Luck Dinner. This was the Mazzarella's cooked from scratch Mexican Gourmet Food Dinner for which they worked in the kitchen all day to prepare for us.
It was fantastic.
