We had the good fortune of enjoying another Latkefest at Rev. Joe Kendall's lovely abode on Sunday, simultaneously gorging ourselves on a multicultural buffet of Jewish, Greek, Italian, Cuban and Deep South cuisine while soaking in as much football on TV as possible and sharing fellowship with friends and family.
The reverend, as always, was a gracious host, greeting everyone who attended:
He also was polite enough not to ask why the Salad clan was all dressed as if we were about to be put into the game by Coach Gruden.
That's the great thing about Rev. Joe; he overlooks your faults and celebrates your ideocyncracies.
The food was beyond outstanding. Rev. Joe here slices a wedge of "multilevel vegetable lasagne."
To borrow a phrase, it was to die for.
The best part of the party is the meeting of old friends and the making of new ones. Here, Jose introduces his beautiful son Dylan to some of the reverend's neighbors.
We resisted the urge to put a sombrero on the tot.
