I <3 dinner party Thursdays!

Tonight was a great night with 5 of my college girlfriends over.  After a scrumptious (if I do say so myself!) dinner, we cuddled up on the couch (yes 6 “grown ups” squeezed on the couch) and looked through college photo albums that Heather brought over.  It was so fun to see our baby faces and reminisce and laugh about how we met and fun nights that we shared.  I am truly blessed to have such great people surrounding me.  It was a much needed fun and a great way to spend the first week of 2011.  Nights like this truly make my apartment feel like home 🙂

It was also my friend Nicky’s birthday yesterday, so dinner was also a celebration of her and another great year for her.  Last year Nicky mentioned a couple of times how we were getting old, and I don’t like the thought of that.  So, I wanted to put a stop to that nonsense!  So, last year for her birthday, we started the tradition of only toasting and celebrating a fantastic new year which is always bound to be full of exciting adventures and challenges.  We have carried it through several birthdays, and carried through tonight with a bubbly toast to her.  So, once again, Happiest of Happy Birthdays, Nicky!!

The next few posts were what we had for dinner tonight…

And these are a few of  mi amores…  I am in the process of setting up my old college desk top to get my pictures, so if I find any really good baby face ones, they may be popping up at some point!

About Hang Onto Your Fork

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
