The Dinner is Done!

Well folks, its been a very busy few weeks since my last entry culminating in our wonderful Dinner at Southland this last Thursday night. We pretty much followed the menu I posted last time and every thing pretty much went well. There were some small snafus along the way but all in all it was a success. It was so hectic and busy I did not get a single image to share with you guys, I am so sorry. The duck was superb and the aged cheddar is glorious. I should be back up and blogging very soon, so stay tuned!
