Hospitality: Pepper and Linda wrote the book, OR How To Shower Your Out-of-State Friends With Love and Affection

Chapter One -- Hook them up with your sweet connections to Disneyland's Club 33, where they will eat and eat and enjoy feeling exclusive and eat some more and love every minute of it. Let them invite their whole family.

Chapter Two -- Entertain their children in Sacrament Meeting.

Chapter Three -- Invite them to your house for lunch and fill them with delightful grilled salmon, steamed broccoli, baked zucchini with parmesan, two varieties of potatoes, and Texas sheet cake with really good frosting.

Chapter Four -- Entertain their children again, this time with your spectacular toy collection.

Chapter Five -- Send them on their way with a bag full of snacks for the car, including that expensive bag of yummy Peanut Roca you just bought at Costco. While you're at it, mention to the pregnant one that she's not fat, thus making her feel okay about consuming said bag of Peanut Roca.

Chapter Six -- GIve them directions home, as well as plenty of cash just in case the toll roads won't make change for their $20.

"The fabled and exclusive Club 33 had impeccable food and service." The Arizona Republic, Sunday, June 4, 2006

"Did Pepper really walk away from her son's stroller and it rolled down the hill and he fell over on his face?" Elliot, curious listener of stories

"Marvelous! Five stars! Any guest would be lucky to have Pepper and Michael and Linda as hosts. Would read this book again and again. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" Emily, grateful friend and indebted recipient of service described in book

What a meal that was! I especially loved the shrimp, crab and lobster on ice, and the macaroon/chocolate cookies. Reading the Republic article confirms we were treated like royalty. Thank you, thank you to the Hughes family!

Sounds like a fun book. Emily, thanks for the great post. We loved every minute of it. Plus, it was all just payment for Steve's art work. I am glad everyone had a yummy time at Club 33. And Sarah, yes, anytime. You and your beautiful family are more than welcome to Club 33 and our home. I told Em, because of your blog, I am your closet best friend. I love reading about your happenings.

We can be best friends once you start writing your own blog so I can know the intimate details of YOUR life, too! :)
