Summer. Food. Drinks. Friends.

I have a lot of foodie friends, and some friends who aren't so foodie but love to eat, and we love to get together for lengthy dinners.  Last time we all got together was for my 25th birthday dinner party back in July - which was kind of the catalyst for me starting this blog.  For that dinner, I prepared a five course meal and it was spectacular but I thought I would change things up this time.  For this dinner I asked my guests to bring one course each (well, each couple).  It made for a very interesting and fun evening full of lots of laughs and delicious food.  And when I say lengthy, the appetizers went out at 7:15pm and dessert was served at 11:30pm!  Check out some photos from the night.

An amazing night and I already cannot wait for the next one.
