First I want to apologize for taking an extended break from updating my blog. It was my birthday last week and naturally I did not do ANYTHING but relax for an entire week. Well that was until my dinner party.
Yes! Oh yes! Me and my homegirl Ashley (you can follow her @Girl_Bye_5) had been talking about doing a dinner party, and I thought my birthday would be PERFECT for such an occasion. I figure I’d be cooking anyway, why not make it fabulous! She and I conspired a bit and developed a fabulous menu and the rest was history! For the party each of our guests brought a bottle of wine to compliment the different types of food we were serving and my other homegirl Tiffany (@TPolite) is a Pure Romance consultant and so she brought all of her goodies and the party was under way! Needless to say it was a BLAST. The food was great, the wine was fantastic, and the “goodies” were even better! I was given the stripper name “Good Eats” and I am trying to figure out ways in which I can incorporate said name into my every day life.
- Lamb Lollipops served with a Creamy Mint Sauce
- Turkey Tenderloin Sliders with a Raspberry Mustard Spread
- Macaroni & Cheese served in Champagne glasses
- Spinach & Goat Cheese Tartlets
- Mini Vegetable Lasagna Cups
- Spinach & Spring Mix Salad
- Yellow Cupcakes with Pink Lemonade Cream Cheese Icing (& a sweetart!)
- Lots and lots of wine!
Here is a look at the party spread!
It was so much fun and I can’t wait to do even more parties! I will post the recipes to all these goodies on Friday. Additionally, as football season approaches and everyone will surely be tailgating and throwing magnificent parties, I will post great party recipes to ensure y’all have a great time!
*Special thanks to my other boo Ashley (@MsAshleeRenee) for allowing us to party at her place!
