Last week, Randy wanted to do something special for the boys at Girasoles Ica, and since he enjoys cooking, he asked if it would be possible for him to make dinner for the 40 boys and 10 staff that live and work at the home.
After he got the go ahead from Augusto, the house parent, we were off to the grocery store to buy ingredients. Let’s just make it clear that preparing a dinner for 50 people is very different than for just 2 or 3 people. Thankfully, we both have had a basic experience with this from helping our mother shop for various events, and a team of interested boys that anxiously helped with the process.
Part of the ingredients – garlic, pasta, kalamata olives.
A handful of boys helped cook the noodles.

Taste test… the moment of truth.
