Food Fun with Grandma part 1: Great Grandma's Kitchen Cafe

Last weekend (Valentine's Weekend) His mom came to visit us for the first time in our current home. In the fall of 1998 She and Her daughter made this cookbook of Her mother's  favorite recipes as a family gift following Great Grandma death. The girls discovered the recipe book and wanted to make the visit a little more special by surprising Grandma with a dinner using  recipes of their choice from the cookbook.

Our dining room was transformed in to Great Grandma's Kitchen Cafe for the evening. Heartshaped placemats and handpainted plates.

SUCCESS! Grandma was surprised and the girls were very proud of themselves.
