The Allen Whirlwind -- posted by Mom

I can't believe we never posted about the kids performing in Swift Strike last August!  Will, Sarah Grace, John, and Richard acted in it, George covered tech, while I was the backstage babysitter for a newborn whose mommy was in the production.  Richard was actually the lead, and we were extremely proud of the fantastic job he did.  Must find pictures to share.

As most of you know, the older boys have been working at various restaurants over the last several years learning the ropes of every aspect of running a restaurant, with the goal of having a family business they could work together.  Will and Sarah Grace went to culinary school with this end in mind.  Lo and behold, Everyday Gourmet, the restaurant Will worked at and loved came available for purchase, and the children recently bought it.

We're still in the process of developing the new branding and expanding on the restaurant's current offerings.  We've already been able to adapt our home recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas side dishes and desserts, which have been well received. 

Here's the Facebook page, and we would welcome you to follow for updates!

Also, yes, that was Sarah Grace and Noah in Columbia Metropolitan Magazine.
