Season Two - "Season Premier"

On April 15, 2008 we were back to Lynley's for some more fabulous filet's ("Filet Mignon with Mushroom-Wine Sauce"), fitting for Lynley's new nickname - "Wine Girl"! Lara brought two yummy appetizers, "Pickled Mushrooms" and "Pickled Okra Roll-ups". Andrea shared a "Honey Citrus Salad"; Bridget tried "Pat's Stromboli Bread " (from Everyday with Rachel Ray), and Jodi made delicious "Gouda Potatoes". Sadly, L.S. wasn't able to make it (our first absentee yet), but Lynley treated us to some chocolate fondue for desert. We dipped strawberries, bananas and marshmallows. Yum!
