My dear husband had been nominated for
a 33rd degree in Free Masonry.
Now, for you in the know, this is a very big thing.
This an honor among honors.
My husband received his entree of roasted chicken breast
with green beans (the ubiquitous Masonic vegetable)
and red bell pepper.
I had to opt for the vegetarian dish.
Thus, I had ravioli with tomato sauce.
Do you like how they still managed to work
in the green beans?
That, my friends, is dedication to the craft.
The dessert dish was straight from Sam's Club.
Chudleigh’s™ Apple Blossoms to be exact.
They might have even been better if they were warm.
Hey, I call 'em like I see them.
Later that evening,
after rushing back from our Philadelphia tour but before seeing the Liberty Bell,
we arrived in time at the Academy of Music for Vespers.
This is a lovely place.
