On Saturday night we hosted a dinner party at our house for a few couples! There were 8 of us total.
I did a cheese tray and some nuts for appetizers during cocktail hour. Then we had a caesar salad, chili and jalapeno cornbread. Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars were an easy dessert. Whenever I have people over for dinner, I like to do meals that are low maintenance for when the guests are there. I like to do all the prep beforehand so I can enjoy our time with friends.
Had to use the NC State trays with their big win over Duke on Saturday!

After dinner we all wandered to our backyard which is basically where we live. We can wait to redo it with stone (rip out that concrete pad) and a big stone fireplace and built in gas grill and mini fridge. One day...hopefully in the next year!

Then Kevin evidently thought it'd be wonderful to wear these terrible shirts out to a hole in the wall bar called Yellow Rose....his old stomping ground years ago. It's been so warm that Kevin did wear shorts. The bedroom slippers - well, I'm not sure why he wore those!
Mills was supervising of course!
We had a wonderful night with great friends! Come back soon you guys!
