PLUG end of year party recap

PLUG's end of year party was last night. We had a good turnout. Congratulations to our new parents who weren't in attendance. Take care of the family, we'll be here :).

We had some good food as well. That included another delicious reminder that Spanish tortilla is different than Mexican tortilla. We also had a great orange cake. Baked good go over well for some reason. Other items included: ham ( very moist out of a crockpot ), chicken, casserole, cucumber salad, chips and salsa ( we are in Phoenix ), hummus, cupcakes, cookies and donuts.
