DJS Homecooked Meal!

Sophia says:  Hello Readers! We have a very special review for you. My friend Deanna, Josh, and I decided to have a dinner party for my mom and dad. We planned it a month ahead of time and I was really excited. The menu was edamame for an appetizer, salmon with sun-dried tomatoes for the main course, Greek lemon roasted potatoes and glazed carrots for side dishes, and last but not least, strawberry shortcake for dessert. We made everything from scratch, and my mom and dad didn't know the menu till that night. It was really fun baking, stirring, and chopping food, and my mom and dad LOVED it. It was a wonderful time. I hope you like my photos and my captions!

Josh says: I made an incredible dinner! I was the one of the chefs and I had a good time!

Paul says:  What a delightful evening! A well planned and executed gourmet dinner! The salmon was cooked to perfection with beautiful parsley and sun dried tomato topping. The home cooked potatoes were lightly seasoned with the perfect degree of crispiness.  The carrots were warm and tender and delicious - I had thirds and I'm seeing much better today! The dessert was incredibly delicious. I would definitely go here again - what a treat!  

Jodie says: Last night we had a great dinner at Deanna's house and everything was a complete surprise! Deanna is a good friend of ours and a beautiful hostess.  After enjoying our edamame appetizer, we sat in the dining room for the main course. The salmon was perfectly cooked and restaurant quality!  Sophie & Josh brought out the dishes and each one was delicious! My favorite dish was the homemade strawberry shortcake.  It is one of my favorite desserts and having it was a real treat!  We had a fantastic time and I wish we could do this every week!

I know this isn't our usual type of review but we wanted to post this because our dinner was everything a great restaurant meal should be.
