We had a great kitchen as well with two of each of the major appliances including dishwashers so no one wasted time standing at the sink. Breakfasts and lunches were continental style which accommodated the early risers as well as those who took this opportunity to sleep in - maybe because they were up most of the night stitching and giggling? lol Suppers were prepared ahead and home cooked and delicious! Gotta love Leslie's cheesecakes! The kitchen duty of warming up, setting up and tidying after was worked on a rotation so no one spent too much time in the kitchen. It worked out so most people had kitchen duty for two meals over the five days - not too hard on anyone. All the prep was done by Leslie before the retreat - bless her heart!
So, that is the venue we had - more on the retreat itself in the next post!
