    Hi Brigit and Dahiana! The only thing that is stopping me from having more people is the impending bad weather. As of right now, every person attending has a place to sit in my home. I have plenty of room in my yard, but rain and uncomfortable humidity is a concern for me. I hope the forecast changes within the next few days. I would love to have you.

    Happy to see everyone coming. Be sure to spread the word to new people. Challenge a meat eater not to love Renee's cooking.

    This is gonna be Great! Renee is a great chef and a very special person. She was the caterer at our wedding for 73 people last month. Everyone, including all the carnivores loved her delicious and creative cuisine. We recommend you invite family and friends to this event. Last time some talented people played instruments. I hope that happens again. ( that's a hint to anyone who is talented and will be there). We are very much looking forward to it.
