The room reflected the smiling faces of The Lady Niners seated at lovely elf and tree topped tables draped with black table cloths, red napkins, and white covered chairs. A fabulous lunch was enjoyed by all. It featured a plated salad of gorgonzola, candied pecans, sour dough croutons, sundried cranberries, shredded carrot, diced apple, bacon crumbles with Champagne vinaigrette. Entre was Tournedos Rossini, sliced tenderloin on a French baguette, bourson cheese, red wine demi glaze, tomato relish, twice baked potato, roasted asparagus and balsamic cherry tomatoes. Dessert was chocolate chip bread pudding, whiskey sauce and a whipped cream strawberry.
