My husband and I were recently selected as two of the “Volunteers of the Year” for Washington Elementary School, and attended the banquet along with the other parents being recognized. It was quite an honor and a lovely conclusion to the eight years we have spent at the school.
There was a tempting buffet with a selection of salad, pasta and bread and a choice of dessert, but once we were home, we wanted another bite of something sweet – these White Chocolate Blondies were the perfect ending to a wonderful evening with fabulous people.
