The Gardner Family Sweetheart Dinner

After 38 years of friendship, I earned an invitation to the Gardner Girls family Sweetheart Dinner.  
This coveted annual event brings a family together for an evening of fun games and wonderful food.
This year Sister Angell and Sister Vaughan hosted for a few couples.
We started the evening with an appetizer, none better in all Peru.
A cheese dip by the Garder Sisters, pictures below.

We all had to cut valentines blindfolded, a bit tricky, 
thank goodness this doesn't reflect how much we love our spouses. 

 The Smith's, Fenn's, Padilla's and Marler's had a wonderful evening.
The highlight was the dessert judging contest.  The rules were that the husband had to make the dessert and "sell his product" to the hungry crowd.
We had Chocolate cookies by Elder Padilla and a Norwegian Cookie by Brother Fenn.
There was also a strawberry cake and heart shaped chocolate chip cookies by 
couples who didn't read the rules.
We will work on that for next year.
