Last night I hosted a dinner for my best friends from high school. Oh, how wonderful it was to see everyone and finally really relax!! I provided the adult beverages and Kath’s/Karen’s wonderful veggie lasagna, and everyone else brought the rest.
I had an eggnog + bourbon and another Sweetwater Festive, but had to stop halfway through this beer because of a bad headache:( I think the exhaustion of the week caught up with me.
But, I still managed to enjoy fabulous food and intriguing conversation.
Appetizers were bruschetta and eggplant dip.
I actually didn’t snap a picture of the lasagna, but got all the desserts. The infamous buckeyes:
My friend Laura’s famous peppermint brownies….
and chai snickerdoodles!
Corbin’s incredible white chocolate peppermint popcorn.
And Meredith’s fruit crisp!
I kicked off my first day off of work with a leisurely breakfast, an hour at the gym, and I spent the afternoon baking a white chocolate peppermint cheesecake! I’ll let you know how it is tomorrow. I’m now at home in Hillsborough and Matt and I are preparing for yet another party! Let the festivities begin.
