Dinner friends

Friday we had our Dinner Friends Christmas dinner.  We had it at someone's home.

One person was unable to come because she had the flu but one of the dinner friend's we haven't seen for a long time came which it was very nice to see her.

Everyone brought either an appetizer or a dessert.  We ordered lasagna, rigatoni and bread from a restaurant.  The hostess made a salad and we all brought a bottle of wine.

The food was fabulous.  I think everyone stuffed themselves.  It was so nice doing it at someone's home because you could finally have a discussion among the 10 of us where everyone could hear what was being said.  

I didn't come home until about 10 but I had such a good time.  What a great way to spend an evening.

I went out to dinner last night as well, and WE had Italian! It was home-made, though. It was the first party of the season.

It sounds like a lovely tradition. And, when you factor in that everyone bought a bottle of wine, I'm thinking how could you miss having a good time??!!

This sounds like a fun idea, Viki! It's true that dining out cna be a noisy and rushed affair, so having a host home and sharing the production of the meal is a good plan!
