A quick segue from the wedding talk. I am having a little get-together this Friday night, and it will be really nice to relax with some of my closest friends. I have never had a real “dinner party” and this is it. We are going to totally try to act like grownups, and drink wine and dress up. Stay classy, Chicago.
We are inviting 3 other couples, and there will be 8 people total. I am trying to do the long, rectangular table thing, but if all 8 can’t fit at the table we have, I might put two together and go for a square table look.
Spicy Marinated Olives (from Rachel Ray)
Antipasto Platter (from the kitchen sink)
And Pear Turnovers from Rachel Ray
I am hoping people will bring some desserts, and Brendan is making a Goat-Cheese salad from his Canadian Cookbook. And I plan on buying lots of wine, and killing a bottle of Chardonnay that has been in the fridge since the holidays.
I guess we’re white, as this blog tells us.
