My son came home from his final year in college. Before he arrived, he told us that he had a surprise and that he wanted to bring someone with him. We never had any issues with anyone that he brought home in the past so we said sure. When he came home, he walked through the door with one of the most beautiful girls I had ever seen. On his face was the biggest smile that I think he could fit on there. I had never seen him smile like that before. Then he dropped the bomb, “Mom, Dad…. we’re engaged!” Holy smokes… I had to sit down for that one. We hadn’t even met this girl before.
I have always trusted him to make the right choices, so I wasn’t going to question his decision. We just hugged and kissed them both and sat down to chat. I knew that we had to celebrate. I asked them what they wanted for dinner besides a big bottle of champagne. My boy said that his new fiance really liked chicken cordon bleu.
Well, it just so happened that I had a recipe for that which I saw on Relative Taste a few weeks earlier. It must have been a premonition that I was going to need it. I headed to the store to pick up the ingredients I needed to create us a beautiful meal. We needed to learn more about this woman who was soon to become our daughter!
