The “Commodores” had their annual Christmas party luncheon here with us at the Williams House. Lots of fun and a great group of ladies!
We started out with a Fruitini (fresh fruit with an enhanced yogurt topping), a salad of fresh tender mixed greens, cranberries and mandarins with a citrus strawberry vinaigrette. The main course was Asparagus Quiche, Sweet Potato Souffle and our signature Chicken Casserole with its almond and celery creamy rich goodness! Somewhere in the middle of all of this freshly baked Maple Pecan Scones were served with the heavenly coveted devonshire cream and for dessert there were rum pecan cookies, chocolate covered strawberries and pecan cranberry torte’s!
