It is such a great event. Many years ago we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with immediate family with a Hearthside Dinner.

Sounds absolutely delicious!

Will there be any historic baseball this year?

Looks really good!

We are doing this in April. Looks like fun!

What's missing from this picture? You! And an array of delicious food, of course.

We love putting on Hearthside Dinners at Wade House, and love watching guests learn about old-fashioned cooking techniques and putting them to use! Sitting down to a wonderful mean afterwards is pretty great, too.

We often make many of the recipes we learned from the Hearthside Dinners. Tonight we're enjoying corn chowder and Brethren cheddar bread from the Yankee menu. Perfect on on snowy night like tonight!

Can’t wait for this weekend!
