Oh! I Love the one with the puffy eyes!

On Saturday night, a few friends came by for a little supper and conversation and I couldn’t have had a better time! We ate, we drank, we laughed, we cried, we acted like we were in the seventh grade.

Those in attendance included:

I served sweet bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin (the same recipe I served for Scott and Lenka a while back), butternut squash lasagna that I found here, Rachel made some deliciously steamed broccoli and we had an apple walnut crisp with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

The church where I work had a huge banquet complete with harvest-themed centerpieces.  There were tons left over so my boss sent me home with 7 of them! After taking a couple to Mama and Grandmama, I had the perfect fillers to make the party feel really polished.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m no expert when it comes to wine. I have no palette for what’s good or bad (except for Doghouse. Yuck!) So, instead, I purchase wine based on the prettiness of it’s packaging and I thought this bottle fit very well with the Fall theme. It was drinkable so that’s good enough for me. Seriously, when you read the reviews of wines and they say they have juicy, fruity, nutty or peppery flavors, I have yet to taste that in a bottle of wine.  Maybe I’m just unsophisticated.  At least I didn’t serve it over ice. :)

I also picked up a few bottles of this. It’s pretty good but I’m not entirely sure how I feel about pumpkin ale. It makes me queasy to think about but it tastes pretty good.

I absolutely love entertaining and a small dinner party with friends was just what the doctor ordered last week.  I feel very confident in saying I have hilarious (and pretty) friends. Let me know if you want to set your attractive guy friends up with any of them. :)

All the pictures except for the beer are stole from various and sundry Facebook profiles. The beer image is from here.

  3. Well, this looks just lovely! That meal sounds delicious and very seasonal! I’m pretty sure I’ve had Harvest Moon before and it is very good!
    Glad you had a good time, and next time I hope to be on the guest list :)
