For over two year a bunch of girls have been meeting for dinner. When we started this gathering we all were not close friends. But, as time has gone by it has become a date to look forward to with great friends. I now consider all these gals great friends.
These are the rules that we have setup for our monthly dinner
1. It is the second Tuesday of every month
2. A hostess gets to choose the dinner theme, she is to prepare the main dish and drinks
3. The hostess with email the other girls asking for supporting dishes-such as vegetable, salad, bread, and appetizers
4. The next hostess is always named before the nights end
These are some very simple rules, and it really gets us out of the house. We are all busy women and cooking can get old. Just think, if you are just cooking one spectacular dish-it makes dinner a whole lot easier.
We started a blog, 2nd Tuesday dinner, but the girls are not bloggers, so therefore nobody was posting. I love my dinner club, so I will take the lead and post all about it. If you are interested in any recipe, just contact me and I will get it.
This month was the Barefoot Contessa recipes and it was at my house. I was going to make here Chicken Salad and to drink Coppola Wines. Here are some great pictures!
Marci made a wild mushroom risotto. It was yummy if you like mushrooms.
Julie made a roasted pear dish with blue cheese salad. This was so wonderful, I love blue cheese!
Judith made a bow-tie pasta dish with garlic and broccoli, Denise made a butternut squash and apple soup, & Jessica made a spinach appetizer. All of which I never took pictures of, silly me!
And last....the coconut cake by Mary. It was spectacular!
Everything was delicious.....Next month Irish Theme.
