I decided to surprise Joel one night for dinner with a few of his favorites. I got the girls up early one morning and ran to the grocery store so I could have everything prepared before Joel got home from work at the base. Nothing like making a batch of stuffing at 10:00 in the morning on a 80+ degree July day!
So for dinner we had stuffing, Italian cut green beans (yuck, but he loves them), sirloin steak and chocolate fudge cake. To drink was raspberry lemonade and one of his favorite beers - St. Pauli Girl. Dinner was quite a strange mix of foods, but I wanted him to get some of his favorites before his deployment. He gets all sorts of skinny on deployments, so I needed to fatten him up a bit beforehand.
Dinner was a hit. We were both feeling it though - the steaks were gigantic and it was kind of hot for a big pile of stuffing, but it was well worth it.
