Did you think this was going to be my meal plans for next month? I don't even know what's for dinner tomorrow. Tonight the kids go to church with the In Laws for dinner and choir, and I have GNO with the cul-de-sac gang. We're ordering in Chinese.
Just a couple more weeks and I will be travelling to Michigan to get together with my childhood friends. We are planning our annual dinner party on Saturday night (February 28th) and I am very excited. Last year I went to celebrate my birthday (a big one),and this year we will be celebrating birthdays of 3 friends that are a year younger than me. I had my dad prepare the meal last year because 1. He's a great cook and 2. It was my birthday. This year, I thought I would do the meal. I love to cook and being able to do so for a group of people that are as experimental as I am, and enjoy good food, makes it even more fun.
I was looking around online for somedinner party ideas and have yet to decide on a theme, but want to do something fabulous to honor my friends, and to once and for all convince my father that I can cook beyond boil-in-bag food. Do they even make those anymore? So I'm thinking possibly Mexican or Italian. I make a great spaghetti sauce and with a fancy salad and some yummy artisan bread we would all be Fat Dumb and Happy. I also do a mean Fajita and like the idea of everyone serving themselves...hmmm...tough choice.
Any ideas would be appreciated. I love new recipes and have an appreciative audience. Want to suggest something?
