I am in a bunco group and last Friday was my turn to host the game at my house. All last week was spent on fun projects gearing up to have some of my favorite ladies over.
Even if no one notices those little details, it’s OK because it brings me joy to do them. What we all can agree on is that good food is important. Vital, even. I know that every bunco group does things a little differently, but in our group the hostess provides full dinner, dessert and drinks for the evening. For dinner, I served Scissors and Spatula’s Tuscan Chicken Cakes with Tomato-Basil Relish. It is one of my favorite dishes. You really need to go check out the recipe and give it a try. Oh. My. Yum.
|I also served a simple green salad tossed with balsamic vinaigrette and a sun-dried tomato and Parmesan pasta. Yummy.|
Handsome Hubby was on hand to pour wine and help out in the kitchen (he’s so wonderful!). We had some wine, we had some dinner, then we played bunco!
Oh. And we always eat dessert. It was hot, so I opted for simple: Ice cream and fresh blueberries.
Sometimes we get so busy and so scheduled, we forget to schedule to have a little fun. Thanks to bunco, once a month, I get to do just that.
