Event: Jackson's Mulligan on Life 2011

Every year, I attend a charity event for Jackson's Mulligan on Life. It supports organ donation for child in need. Usually people take part in the golfing offered that day but I really only show up for the dinner afterward. I do not know how to golf but plan to learn it one day. Dinner starts with an open bar and a nice cocktail hour. Lots of sliced meats, cheeses, and different salads. I like to try the seafood salads. This year, they had crab, mussels, and shrimp. A nice light start to the meal.

Dinner is served buffet style with a variety of meats and vegetables. I chose salmon, fried cod, beef medallions, and pork. One the side I had rosemary potatoes and beans and carrots.

There's also a pasta station that offered penne with marinara and ravioli in vodka sauce.
Lastly, there's also a carving station (the best station in my opinion) offering sliced beef and turkey with some sauces and au jus.
Dessert consisted of a variety of cookies, and brownies.
But the best is the fresh fruit. Oooh, pineapple.
Every year, I'm happy to support this great cause over some food, drinks, and laughs.
