Yesterday was our 37th wedding anniversary.
Do you like the '70's styles? Our moms sewed the matching dresses.
We saw these bridesmaids dresses in a store for $60. That was really expensive back in 1975. Too much for a pastor's salary! We found the pattern and fabric in a store in Hutch and ended up sewing them for $12 a piece!
The common communion cup came with our immigrant ancestors from Russia.
We decided to combine our anniversary with our restaurant pick of the month (we try a restaurant we have never eaten at before each month). Someone gave us a gift certificate to this place (thanks Mindy!) so this the place we went to.
There was quite a long wait for the food -15 minutes or so, which is ok for sit down, but was surprised at for sandwiches. Not complaining, just saying. Have to admit it was quite busy. A very popular place and lots of people came. You can order ahead of time (on-line or call in) and that might be the thing to do if you are in a hurry.
Al ordered the McAlister's Club - smoked turkey, ham, bacon, sharp cheddar, Swiss, lettuce, tomato, honey mustard and mayo on wheat. It was really good! (We ended up sharing eachother's sandwiches)
I ordered the Cobb Club - turkey, bacon, gorgonzola cheese, avocado, lettuce, tomato, mayo and Parmesan Peppercorn sauce on ciabatta.
We enjoy this place and go every year at least once, but sometimes more. Depends on the programs and how busy we are. This evening we came to listen to the New Zealand String Quartet. You can eat here if you want as a dinner is offered, and we have done that before, but we think it is fun to bring our own.
During intermission, we had someone take our photo and we meandered around the gardens.
