Today’s #foodpornfriday features a SUPER special surprise anniversary dinner from our boys!

Yup, the same fellas who have brought you past Chef’s Bet Dinners here, here, here, here, here, and here!
Phew! Yup, these husbands have TRULY outdone themselves once again for our dear friends Viet and Fawn’s 12 year wedding anniversary dinner.

The Deets

Since this was a surprise for the wifey, hubby enlisted 6 of his best friends (including my hubs) to whip up a 12-course dinner with alcohol and wine pairings.  Similar to the Chef’s Bet Dinners you’ve peeped in the past; however this time TOP 2 of the finest amateur chefs you’ll ever meet came out of their culinary hibernation to partake in all the epicurean action (ahem, OMK and Doc!)

 Thank you to our amazing Chef husbands Ken, Dave, Paul, Viet, Theo, Chris, and le hubs for hosting and whipping up THE dinner of the year!  This singular meal was by FAR the best we’ve ever had! It’s safe to say this group of 7 is the lucky #winning combo guys!

Happiest 12th anniversary to our darlings Viet and Fawn!
Cheers to an endless celebration of love, laughter, milestones, and more! To the next 100 years guys!!!

Wishing everyone a fabulous Memorial Day weekend with your family and friends!
