I have spent most of the last 50 years either catering, consulting or working as a chef while raising my 3 children as a single mom. I opened the first "home meal replacement" establishment before they were popular. I was fortunate enough to study in France at La Varenne and L'Academie de Cuisine in Washington DC. When I was 50, I went back to El Centro College to get my Chef's certification.
I am now retired and spend my time volunteering at a local food pantry, needlepointing and working on my cookbook. My two granddaughters, Ainslee and Olivia, ages 4 and 12 respectively, spend lots of weekend time with me. I was recently able to be be caregiver for my one year old grandson, Evan Christopher, when his mom went back to work. (Till he was 8 months)
I am fortunate that I enjoy excellent health, all the kids and grandkids are great, and I can sit back and be thankful for my many blessings!
I am single but have a wonderful guy (Herb) in my life; we have been together for almost 20 years now! We have our own houses so that may be the secret.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion.
