Dinner Party

We're having a some friends, a couple, over for dinner tomorrow.  They're not childless, they have two but those kids are grown, heck, they are my age and those kids have kids.  Thankfully, they are all out-of-state and don't get in the way of our partying!  Chip and Kate are youthful, fun, love to drink, love to dive, and love Jesus.  What's not to love about them?

The menu is lasagna, garlic bread, a salad with butter lettuce and a red wine vinaigrette.  My boss encouraged me to make the lasagna tonight since of course, it's always better the next day.  I've made the recipe dozens of times but have only reheated it for myself or the hubs in the microwave.  Making this elegant by reheating in the oven might be a bit of a challenge.  I just recently figured out what I'd do for dessert.  I'm addicted to chocolate and slightly less addicted to peanut butter.  So, I found a recipe for chocolate peanut butter cup cupcakes with peanut butter/vanilla frosting.  I'm already getting a high just thinking about it.

This photo belongs to Cheers to Happy.  Thank you, ma'am and I will update everyone on the result.  I'm bummed I'm going to miss Tebow play tomorrow since the party will be on and we don't have a TV!



  1. I love that you don't have a TV. We don't have cable, which strikes most people as odd in itself, but really, there's already so few hours in the day.

    I ALSO love that you're throwing a dinner party. I think more dinner parties are part and parcel of my REAL resolutions for 2012. Viva la vita!

  2. I love dinner parties and yours sounds like it's going to be great! Good luck and have fun! :)

  3. Can I get that recipe for the cupcakes? Yum!
