Tonight we got fancy! For no reason at all, "Dinner at the Becks" was a fancy, frivolous occasion!
Inspired by the latest children's book by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser -- FANCY NANCY... Let's Get Fancy Together -- the youngest in our family, Grace, decided to throw a fancy feast for dinner. And surprisingly, even on the first night back to school after vacation for 2 weeks, everyone participated with pomp and circumstance!
Grace was able to talk Shane into cooking for the occasion and he prepared the Short Ribs on the cover of the October 2007 issue of Bon Appetite. Mmm Mmm good! She used the invitations from the book, set place cards and gave away party favors -- that's mamma's girl!
In Nancy's honor, dinner was served on our fancy, french china, we sat in the dining room and ate by candle light, dressed as fancy as we could take our selves seriously! From feathery boas to glittery sunglasses, we dined and laughed and toasted a fun and fancy family occasion!
Merci Beaucoup, Gracie ... for the frivilous night!
