The food was FAB. The only thing that would of made it better was more bacon! :) jk The only addition I might of added would of been a soup. Only because I got cold and I love soup. However, I also loved everthing so I don't know what I would of left out. Melanie did a great job! I do feel bad that she did all the work. I wouldn't mind dividing up the food so no 1 person has to do it all. I worried that it wasn't worth it to Melanie because it took time away from what she needed to do.
Thanks,
Leah McHorse

I thought all of the food was fabulous- my favorite..? Maybe the last meal- that Chicken Salad & green salad were awesome!

Yeah, the food was soooo good. On the way home, I regretted not eating a second Chicken Salad Sandwich. Could we send out the recipe? I know she said it was easy, but I have to have something written down. :) I really liked how it wasn't just "the same ol' thing".

I too loved the food. I mean lets be honest, Melanie is wonderful and so is her food! ;)
I would say to lighten her load maybe since there is so much candy and chocolate that she wouldn't need to make a dessert...of course something made IS yummy. Just a suggestion to make it one less thing for her. ;)
Thanks Mel...you ROCK!

I would have to agree that the food was GREAT! I love that the recipes were availabe. Melanie, you did an awesome job. I am not sure where it can improve.

AWESOME! Having recipe's to take home was great!

The food was larapin'! In fact I made my own version of the chicken fettucine recipe that Mel had last night...still so good!

Oh wait, I have also made the chicken salad....and I would have made that apple salad Mel had for lunch the first day but I was out of lettuce...I am thinking that if I went to the store, I could remake all the retreat meals over the next few days.....and I might!

absolutely LOVED the food. Melanie went to a lot of hard work to make sure we didn't go hungry. I wish she would have let others help her more.

Yes the food was good. Leah Mchorse, I could have had all the bacon in the world and it still would not have been enough. I thought of soup, but its been so hot, I don't eat soup when it's hot. Plus when making soup you are in the kitchen alot and I was looking for easy prep and baking time items. I'm already looking for new easy recipes for 121 days away!!!!

hehe Love ya Mel! I was grateful for the bacon I did get. I had not had it in a long while. I was surprised by all you did that you weren't in the kitchen more and if soup keeps you there to long then NO soup. I want you out with us having fun.
Thanks again for everything!

Food was WONDERFUL! I also feel bad that Melanie spent so much of her retreat time in the kitchen, not to mention the prep time before retreat. I only saw a few of the kitchen helpers actually help her. Perhaps we need to be more specific with what the kitchen helpers should help with next time.
