Next Week: More Chairs

January 25th

community dinner, round 3

Community dinner #3 went off last night without a hitch. Actually, I think it was the most fun yet. I set up a create-your-own pizza and salad buffet and everyone made their own plate on their own schedule. It took a couple hours to prep the plates and bake yet another batch of gingersnaps, but it was well worth the effort.

BBQ chicken pizza, made at home with spices Finny brought me from Rome. Add a bit of pineapple and I’m in pizza heaven.

The only hitch is my home is too small to accommodate the growing crowd. I had two offers last night to bring more chairs next week and my friend Carl even suggested we have the dinner at his house. {A sneaky way to get me to make him dinner without him having to drive over, me thinks.} Yet another fun night shared with friends.

you say ginger, i say snap
Ginger! Snap!

I am living a sweet life.

  1. Looks yummy. Great idea.

  2. Glad your weekly dinners are a success. By the way, your post yesterday inspired me to buy yet another book from amazon!

  3. Is that CARL?! If you hadn’t said he was there I never would have recognized him from this pic.

  4. Yes, you are … lucky girl. Though we make our fortune in many ways, not so?

  5. Wow that looks good. I love making pizza’s like that and do it with just my family sometimes. The dinners sound like fun. I haven’t seen either of those movies yet, I’m thinking of waiting for pay per view.

  6. How cool is this?! Looks like a lot of fun, and I love the make your own pizza idea. Such a party planner!

  7. Looks like fun! Sounds like it’s time to spread out into the living room? (When we had umpteen people here for Christmas, I could only fit all the kids at the table, so all the adults were in the living room with a few little tables sprinkled around.)

  8. Those cookies look SO YUMMY!

  9. Oh, how good of you to do this for your friends! I do pizza like that sometimes, but I usually make the dough, and have the person in the kitchen with me to select the toppings. Fun, but lots of work, too!

    You are soooo organized!
