Earthquake Memorial Dinner

Earthquake Memorial Dinner

We had our 7th annual 1906 Earthquake Memorial Dinner last Thursday!  13 guests came over for our traditional candlelit meal.  I set the table with dark napkins, the good silver and so many candles:

The menu was in line with tradition too: Tadich Grill-recipe cioppino full of salmon and shrimp served with plenty of sourdough garlic bread. Followed by strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream. It’s such an easy meal to prepare. I make the tomato broth  and butter the bread the night before. Before the party, I just had to heat up the broth, add seafood and warm the bread in the oven.

Rob started the party off with a quiz about triage during an emergency. Then we all sat down for dinner and dessert. This is one of my favorite traditions every year!
