January Dinner Meeting and Speaker

January 18, 2020

For January we have a guest booked. We will have the privilege to have Mr. Anthony M. (Mac) Smith as the featured speaker. Mac has an amazing life story as a mechanical engineer that ranges from working on the Apollo 11, Jet engines, and nuclear reactors. He will share with us his story about designing the Apollo 11 Command Module recovery system that allowed the capsule to land safely at sea.

As for food, I have a little Argentinean surprise and some space teamed snacks.

  • Argentinian Skirt Steak with Chimichurri - Skirt steak is a cut of beef that is long, flat, and prized for its flavor. Ours will be grilled to perfection and served with a traditional chimichurri. (Grilled Portobellos available as an alternative)
  • Truffle Mashed Potatoes
  • Grilled Vegetables
  • Green Salad
  • Argentinian Dessert Crepes - Served with Dulce de Leche and red fruits
