Do you know what I love most about being in a dinner group? Getting together with friends regularly. Sometimes I feel like our social lives might get swallowed up by to-do lists or taken over by our kids’ activities – and then we’d never get a fun, casual night with friends.
We brought an appetizer platter of hummus (find the recipe here) and other easy to munch food items like olives and cheese.
Not that I have to be forced to get together with friends but life gets busy and the to-do list gets long. We have to remember to slow down and enjoy.
A yummy arugula salad with beets….
Dinner group forces us to schedule our get togethers with friends and enjoy – and forget about the everyday of life.
A tasty sauce that was meant for the meat but it was good on the potatoes, too.
The dessert was an apple cake with a caramel sauce on top. I shouldn’t have eaten my entire slice but I did. It was absolutely delicious!
My mother-in-law was telling me about their dinner group – it’s now appetizers for “dinner group”. This is brilliant, too. Making dates with our friends and getting together regularly is what dinner group (or appetizer group!) is all about. So, schedule a get together with friends and don’t wait. We all need to have fun and get together with friends regularly.
How do you make sure to get your fun in? Are you in a dinner group?
