Last week we had a delightful evening with friends at their house. We brought soup, pasta and chocolate cake while Bailey and Ryan provided the beautiful home along with salad and bread. Their house-mate, Shawn bought some lovely wine. I think sharing dinner together is such a great way to connect yet it can be difficult on busy work days if one person has to make everything. Sharing the load makes it easier and more fun. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable evening!
Bailey wrote about our evening on her blog. She is a very talented photographer and writer as well as an incredible musician. She has one of the most beautiful voices-- think angel meets rock and roll. Her husband Ryan and Shawn are also very talented musicians and I am not sure how many bands they are in between them but I know I enjoy all of their music. My son got a chance to chat some with fellow musicians, which he enjoyed. Bailey's blog is always fun and inspiring and you can read about our dinner here and see Bailey's great photos.
I will post the pasta recipe soon but if you would like to sample the soup we enjoyed you can check out the recipe from last year for Butternut squash soup . The chocolate cake is the one I posted a few weeks ago.
We enjoyed several fun dinners this week and each one was a group effort with lots of people sharing the load for each dinner. We had a couple of dinner clubs here and had Taco salad night with people bringing something to add to the salad or dessert.
We got a call from our Newly-wed friends, John and Natalie to come join them at their cute little old log cabin where they made delicious pizza and we brought salad. We got to see pictures from the honey-moon :-)
Four dinners in a row would be a lot of work if I was doing all the cooking but many hands make light work! Dinner with friends doesn't have to be labor intensive to be fun!I hope you are inspired to get together with friends and family for dinner this week and share the work to make it fun for everyone!!
