Confirmation Today plus Lots of Food
Aren't my girls beautiful?!!
Today my 15 year old will be confirmed into the Catholic faith (her older sister is her sponsor.) A big spiritual day for her although I'm not sure she "gets" it. That's ok. It will come. She wanted to select Dolly as her confirmation name so she could hear the Bishop say Molly Dolly but I nixed that. So she settled on Margarita because she likes the way it sounds.
After the mass, we'll return to our house for a celebration dinner and will include my ex and his wife , my ex's daughter and her husband, my father in law and my daughter's boyfriend's mother. Complicated, huh?
Here's the menu:
Texas Caviar with tortilla chips
Fruit with fruity dip
Marinated Grilled Flank Steak
Marinated Grilled Chicken breasts
Twice baked potatoes with cheese and bacon
Roasted vegetables (eggplant, portabellos, zucchini, red peppers, asparagus) drizzed with olive oil and balsamic
Cupcakes (my daughter's pick!)
Triple Berry Crisp with vanilla ice cream
