Jim is on the board of the Institute for Justice, and we had the board and almost everyone in the organization (approximately 44 people) over for dinner last night. Robert, Jim’s nephew, came out and helped cook. Without him, we would never have been able to pull this dinner off.
The menu was as follows (no photos, sorry! when there are 40+ people in your house, you forget mundane things like taking photos of the food.)
- Cheese & Charcuterie with Garlic Grilled Baguettes
- Lamb Shanks with Rosemary Orange Gremolata
- Oven Roasted Herb Shrimp
- Moroccan Vegetables
- Tunisian Beet & Potato Salad
- Pineapple with Lime Honey and Lemongrass
- Tossed Salad
- Fresh Berry Salad
- Chocolate Pots de Crème
As with all meals, I was responsible only for the Chocolate Pots de Crème, cleaning up the house, and doing dishes during the day. J And the good news is that there are lots of leftovers, so I can continue to leisurely eat my way through this meal.
Jim has been on the board of IJ for over 20 years. IJ was founded in 1991 and is a civil liberties non-profit. They defend people’s rights relating to private property, economic liberty, free speech, and school choice. In addition to being an incredible group of dedicated professionals, they are also really fun people to hang out with. (As an example, within 60 seconds of arriving at our home, there was already a pool game underway.)
