The Dinner Party


by Tiffany

Chapter 1:
Cook everything from scratch, including making chicken stock from actual chickens.  This takes almost 3 days. 

Chapter 2:
Spend an hour setting the table correctly, as well as using the wedding china that never, ever gets used.  Arrange fresh flowers for the centerpiece.

Chapter 3: 
Pick out fine wines to go with each course.

Chapter 4:
The Guests arrive!

Chapter 5:
Everyone gets completely drunk – including me –  and I forget about things going in and coming out of the oven. 

Chapter 6:
Food not as good as is should be, but everyone is drunk and no one cares. 

Chapter 7:
Guests don’t leave until 2am.

  1. God I wish I lived in Chicago or better yet, you lived in Denver! Glad you thought of me while drinking the Limoncello and Prosecco!!!!

  2. My real point is that we drank so much that I could have served Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee and no one would have been the wiser!

    The only reason Martha Stewart should worry is if I challenge her to a drinking contest at the local bar.

  3. I agree that it was the best dinner party ever. I think it was the extra touch of garlic on the croutons in the salad that did it for me, or was it my 15th glass of wine?

    Tiff: the hostess with the mostest! Great time!
