Not a liar.

Several weeks ago I promised pictures from our Youth Appreciation Banquet. I also promised a new recipe. I havent forgotten.

I've been neglecting my Nikon recently. I've relied on other people to send me their photos because I'm too lazy to lug around our big heavy camera. This happened the night of the Youth Banquet and I bugged Brittany and bugged her and bugged her for pictures. She was awesome and got them to me like the next day or so... and here it is July and I havent posted them yet. Sorry Brittany.

Brittany's not the only poor soul I've been bugging.

But that's neither here nor there.

Jordan and I along with our Youth Student Council held a dinner to love on our Sunday School teachers. These ladies & gentlemen are a HUGE part of our ministry!!!! We LOVE our teachers! They work really hard and we wanted to say thank you!

The students helped out a ton. We cooked dinner, which consisted of salad, chicken spaghetti, bread and dessert. The students picked the menu and helped prepare everything. They also served food, filled glasses and took plates. Basically, once the guests of honor had arrived, the students took over and did an awesome job serving those who have served them this past year!

It was a night filled with fun, laughter and good food. The Barnes family was kind enough to let us crash their house. We definitely made a huge mess...

But once again, the students pitched in and made sure the dishes were clean and the house was back in order.

The dressing we had with the salad is a family recipe that I happen to LOVE. It was a huge hit at the dinner and I was even encouraged to sell it in jars at the farmer's market! If you're looking for a new oil & vinegar based dressing, try out this dressing. Those of you who live in Augusta may remember the Green Jacket Restaurant. It closed down when I was a child, but somehow my mom snagged the recipe for their house dressing. I was having a very hard time deciding whether or not to post about this. I bugged & bugged & bugged my mom for the recipe. She may write me out of the will for divulging her secret. Sorry Mama!

Green Jacket Dressing

1/2 cup Oil
1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 Tomato, cut up into chunks
1 tsp Celery Salt
1 tsp Accent seasoning
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper.

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend for 1 minute or until well incorporated. (There may still be very small pieces of tomato.) Yummmmmmmmmmm.
