Details

Heather had a concussion and wasn't feeling well, so Lena came up with the idea of a store-bought dinner night or more appealingly stated, a Ready-to-eat dinner --playing off the Ready-to-Wear idea. Heather rallied and made a fantastic Chicken dish and hosted a lovely evening. The center photo below shows the different formats of the book that we read -- including a digital copy.
