Tonight we had our first official dinner party as husband and wife in a real house with a real dining room table. See…look at how well my Mom taught me to set a table. : ) (aren’t you proud MOM?)
It was fun. I struggled a lot with the menu but that was mostly because our friends have lots of dietary restrictions . In the end I decided on spaghetti and meatballs and figured if Leslie decided to be a vegetarian she could pick around the meatballs. I made the meatballs this afternoon and let them kick around in the crock-pot with the sauce while we cleaned the house (and the dog). Then before everyone arrived I prepped up a simple salad and some homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Easy peasy.
