You must attend one of my candlelit suppers!

This past Saturday I hosted the first (of what I hope is many) Candlelit Suppers. It was a fantastic evening spent with friends. Jacob & Becky Shapiro attended as well as Logan Brand and Jamie Clark.

It is always fun to practice my etiquette skills. John set the table for us. It was beautiful:


I love having a reason to use my beautiful dishes and the glass glasses.

We had Appetizers and cocktails that included:

Ritz Crackers
Melba Toast

Beverages:

The menu was as follows:

Salad

Main Course
Fresh Bread

Roasted Carrots

Dessert

Dinner was delicious (if I may say so myself.) Almost everything on the menu was something that I had never made before so it was an adventure.


I had meant to take a picture of the 6 of us at dinner, but I forgot. The cameras were sitting out on the coffee table, but apparently that wasn’t enough to remind me. Oh well. Learn from my mistakes.

It was nice having a formal dinner in.
I love cooking for others and trying new things.
I’m really glad I did this.

The next one is in May. I have already planned the menu and am pretty sure about who will be invited. I can’t wait to do it all again.

I love that one of the appetizers was called Amazing White Trash Puff Balls. They sound delicious and the name is hilarious. I'm glad the dinner went well!
