In Philly or anywhere a Philly Cheesesteaks when cooked right is a meal we enjoy! Although we don't like ours with the tradition "whiz." Ah, but you know what they say, "When in Rome..." Pat's or Geno's are famous, but the line is always too long for me. Jim's is famous but not near as crowded. There is a little place across from the historic Christ Church I like, but I can't remember the name.
Tonight we are going to make the Philly sandwiches and garlic parsley fries.

Public Service is our life's passion. How fitting that we would meet working in public service. We are two dreamers who have many dreams, the one most important, that all others are built around is that we use our time well. Our time on this earth as long as God has us here - doing what we can to help others. We learned early the joys of cooking and entertaining. Many memories and important events occur over food and wine. Some of our fondest moments and what we look forward to most is being at home with each other Bo and Tess prepping a meal together while enjoying a glass of wine as music plays softly in the back ground. And we most enjoy being able to have family and friends over to join in the fun.
