January 7, 2013
On Sunday, I threw a small dinner party for a few friends at my apartment. 2013 is the year of dinner parties, I’ve decided. They are so dang fun! My good friends Ann-Marie and Jaymee came with their men (a fiance and a husband!) and it could not have been more delightful. I don’t mean to toot my own dinner party horn, I just really had a fantastic time with these people!
I kept the menu super simple – nothing fancy over here! I made Heidi Swanson’s quinoa cakes (but a super mini-sized version!) for appetizers and then for dinner, it was this minestrone soup, my go-to sun-dried tomato pesto pasta, and a green salad. For dessert, I picked up a few pastries from a local bakery and served it with ice cream. I kinda want to have dinner parties every night. I wonder if Kyle would mind??
It was such a perfect way to end the weekend. Now on to a crazy busy week ahead. Hope your weekend was lovely!
