When I woke up this morning, I thought: "I'm going to throw a party tonight!" Seriously. I know, I'm a little nuts. But I needed [wanted] some good friends and good food. And so I did.
The menu was simple: date rolls (a Christmas tradition), poundcake, almond croissant bread pudding, pâté, and spinach-artichoke dip with bacon. And hot cider. Mmmmm.
Gratefully, I have a well-stocked pantry, and only needed to make a quick trip to the store for only one item. (One Mommy, two littles = 10 minutes. A miracle if there ever was one.)
So we ate, we gabbed, the girls played with little friends, then everyone went home and I fell asleep while putting the girls down. Now isn't that just a perfect day?
