I finally...

hosted a dinner party. It was so fun planning the menu and making food! It was also an added bonus to have my attendees be easy and comfortable guests.

Our menu: chicken breasts wrapped with turkey bacon and stuffed with fresh chive (yep, from my own plant) and garlic cream cheese. salad with tomatoes, cucumber, almonds, and asparagus. fresh basil and goat cheese pasta. and dulce de leche mousse for dessert with fresh fruit that Ashley brought. We drank lime/cucumber water and cabernet that Christen provided (via Trader Joe's).

Now I myself wouldn't boast about the food, only that my friends told me it was great.

The Table
My lovely dinner guests!

These three girls were actually the ones to comment on a previous blog post I did about having a dinner party and each had suggested I invite them. So the moral of the story...if you want me to have you over for dinner...just say so. But hey - I make no guarantees.

Maybe my next dinner guests will be whoever can name the two movie quotes from this post...:)

Very fun and creative, Em. I like the guessing game at the end, but alas- I have no clue when it comes to movies. Is the "Emma" one about boasting on the food?

Sara Huber said...

Wow, sounds like one incredible meal! Such fun...you girls are all so cute. :)
