Here’s an easy formula for frugal living and entertaining – dinner group. Good food + good friends = dinner group. It’s always good fun – and doesn’t break any budgets!
Rotate hosts, rotate homes, and rotate who’s bringing what and you’ve got dinner group. Find some friends – 8 people is a good number – and assign who’s bringing what. It couldn’t be easier to have a pot-luck dinner party!
We begin with appetizers.
Next assignment – bring a green salad.
The hosting couple serves the entree – in this case a delicious prime rib.
Everyone ends up in the kitchen drinking wine and visiting – of course!
The table is set with pretty dishes.
Everyone dishes up, we have a toast to good friends, and we dig in!
The night ends with dessert – and all of us eating too much!
You can entertain, enjoy, and have fun while saving money.
