Years ago, my sister Cheri started spending Thursday nights hanging out with her neighbor Michele watching Project Runway. This became Girls’ Night, complete with an amazing appetizer menu, wine or mixed drinks, assorted desserts, and various entertainment options. They have always welcomed others to the table – so when able, others of us participate as well.
Last night was our Christmas pre-function, and so we went all out:
- gorgonzola pear tarts
- salami and Chinese bbq pork
- smoked salmon, brie & french bread
- spinach artichoke jalapeno dip w/ pita chips
- cambozola and mango/ginger white stilton cheese w/ crackers
- apple pie
- molten chocolate cake
- hot buttered rum, baileys and mocha liqueur
We watched the surprisingly interesting DVD “The Last Station” – a biopic of Tolstoy’s last days – but mostly hung out, hugged and chatted.
While the menu and entertainment are fun and often over the top, most importantly, the company was amazing. Cheri and Michele are awesome friends, and I’m grateful for their support, their inspiration and the little window of good cheer in my life.
Hugs, love and thanks to them both!
