Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Dream Dinners

I have heard a lot of gals talking about Dream Dinners lately. Being somewhat reserved and having a super busy schedule, I didn't even give it a second thought, but I just couldn't get others to stop talking about it :-).
One of my gal-pals Tricia suggested we organize a Mom's Group evening there. I swallowed my hesitation and emailed whoever was on my mind that day.
I didn't know what to expect, but I hadn't heard a singe bad thing about Dream Dinners, so I figured I'd nothing to lose. It never hurts to try something new, RIGHT?!
What a TIME we had! It was especially a blessing for me.
If you haven't heard of Dream Dinners I've included the links below.
Dream Dinners, here, and local Dream Dinners of Lafayette.
GO GO GO! If only once, GO! You'll be glad you did.


DREAM DINNERS






Jamie and Kathy! What a PLEASURE to have met you!


Beth and I decided to have a little fun...

Then we got thirsty and needed some water...

Beth decided to try the wine before we left...

I never expected to get so much out of one evening.
It was just the kick-in-the-rear I needed to find my zest in the kitchen again. Someone once said "The kitchen is the heart of the home." It's amazing what a kitchen full of women can do for your soul.
As I looked around the room, shortly after arriving, I realized that the women gathered were dear to me. Every woman was from a different group of friends; church, mom's group, preschool and college days. I have to admit that I was overcome with joy and oozed happiness. These women went about their evening never knowing how I stood there smiling and laughing, but all the while silently offering up joyful thanks. The Lord has done many things in my life throughout the years and each woman there held a different but special place in my heart, attached to a memory. I FELT the meaning of friendship surround by these women. It was all I could do to keep my cheeks from bursting! My God is SO good to me!

I am glad you had a wonderful Dream Dinners experience. It is the ultimate buy in bulk and save way to have a home cooked dinner and does cost less than buying the same ingredients at a grocery store. It is also very eco friendly, so much less packaging when you buy in bulk. We actually have children on our tasting panels; it is amazing to see what kids will really eat. We put kids in a box when we only feed them "white foods". Don’t miss our new Dream Rewards program, where you will receive gifts and other specials. You can get even more ideas on my blog Take care. http://stephanieallen.wordpress.com/
