A Graduation Luncheon

May 16, 2013

It's May, and the caps are flying. The graduates tossing them are tired, happy, and hungry. Since they've probably been subsisting on Red Bull, espresso, and vending-machine Pop Tarts -- graduation marks the end of finals, after all -- treat the students and your family to a civilized, celebratory lunch. There's nothing like welcoming a new life chapter with a home-cooked meal.
