Four Course Summer Dinner Party
Honestly, I’m drooling even as I write this post.
Last night I had a BLAST.
There was yummy food.
There was tear induced laughter.
There was even a choking incident on a giblet of corn–you know when you are enjoying your food a bit too much and you inhale deeply before completely chewing…and a large chunk of food seems to impale the back of your throat, and soon after embeds into your lung…
yeah, that happened to my dear friend last night.
It was good times.
I was invited to join a dinner party group–called Karrot Sticks.
Basically, it’s a group of 10 super rad and bodacious ladies that leave the kiddos home for one evening every month to enjoy some fine dining in the comfort of a hosts beautiful home.
We divide into groups of two, and every month one group is responsible for creating and hosting a 4-course meal–appetizer, soup or salad, entree and dessert. You even get to pick a theme.
Last nights theme was “Welcome Summer”.
And it turns out, I’m quite a fan of summer food.
~ The Menu ~
Appetizer: Pomegranate Spritzers, Prosciutto Cantaloupe Bites
Salad: Tomato & Watermelon Salad
Main: Mar-a-Lago Turkey burger with Mar-a-Lago Pear Chutney, Sweet Potato Fries with Sour Cream Dipping Sauce, Grilled Corn
Dessert: Blueberry-Plum crisp with Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
You know you’re enjoying your night out when the sun is up when you arrive, and down when you leave.
And just as a reminder that all things beautiful, take lots of hard work.
Thank you, thank you to Amy and Nicki for hosting such a fabulous evening.
My partner Brittney and I are up in August, and we still need to come up with a theme and menu…
