Don't you enjoy and love it when you end up at a luncheon where all your table mates "click"? The subjects randomly jump from one thing to the other. Lots of laughter and fun.
This happened on Sunday.
My good friends Ron and Fred joined myself and my friend Bob for Sunday lunch at Gayle's house.
Along with them is their friend Jim from Dallas. Jim is the person who wrote such a lovely commentary about the blog last week His sense of humor was a delight. It ended up being a table of all Texans. Two of which are attorneys.
Gayle's house is formally known as Mansion de la Montitlan. I think I've written about it before.
Gayle is a former caterer and restauranteur who now only serves on Sundays from a prefixe menu.
It's a breathtaking setting. Not a large outdoor patio but enough to hold about 40 or so. The meals are always delectable.
This past week a couple of the choices were Pork Loin with sweet potatoes and brocolli or Southern Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy along with zucchini. The salad was fresh greens with avocado, nuts, pomegranate seeds and home made dressing. Dessert was a choice of apple pie with ice cream, devil's food cake with fudge frosting or banana split. In addition, home made foccacia bread is served. Your beverage of tea, coffee or jamaica is included.
Service is prompt and courteous. It is what I call a "complete dining experience".
The menu is emailed on Tuesday each week. You respond with your reservation and your entree choice. So easy and efficient.
Add to that laughter and interesting conversation. You then have a "complete experience".
Life is good South of the Border.
