While we still have a few more weeks of summer, kids are going back to school and the season seems to be wrapping up. As we look forward to Harvest season, we reflect on the fun we had this summer grilling at company picnics, delivering pre and post-game meals to the San Antonio Missions baseball team, and catering beautiful wedding receptions.

Passed and Station Hors D’ Oeuvres

A fresh fruit platter, brie en croute with toasted almonds and apricot filling and an assortment of dessert bars were displayed at a station. The customer ordered a sushi boat to add to the fun!
