Gathering with Friends

Three of us routinely take turns having dinner at our homes.  We used to go out to dinner, but it was so difficult to visit.  Competing noise, constant interruptions by the waitress....can I get you anything else asked a million times.  Just leave us alone and let us visit.  Thus, we changed to our homes and in the summer, we may end up down at the beach.  It's nice!

Last night I hosted the gals.
Tried to make the table look spring like.
First up:  Cosmopolitans!  Yes!

Appetizer:   Garlic Feta Dip with Wheat Crackers

Main Course:  Salad de Maison

                        Dutch Oven Bread with Butter

Dessert:  Mississippi Mud Pie - sorry can't bring up picture but I can share its an oreo cookie crust, coffee ice cream filling drizzled with hot fudge sauce and toasted pecans sprinkled on top.  Sinfully delicious.

Our conversation was lively.....from when was the last time we had "fun" with our spouse, to having fun independently, life insurance, our burial plans, our winter vacation next year, and having a bottle of  wine at the beach this summer and more.  It was great.  It was relaxing.

My friends are a blessing to me!

  1. Now when you said "fun", did you mean FUN? Just kidding. Friends are a blessing, and you're a blessing to me. Love, Penny
