Supper Club | January, 2012

Last October, during an evening dinner with the Giovanellos, I mentioned the idea of a supper club.  There are several girls that have been together since the beginning days at Parkwood in Miss Linda's room and now they will be graduating in June.  Most of the girls will all be going to different schools.  So, in an effort to keep them all in touch and for the families to also stay in touch, we decided to start a monthly supper club.  

In January, the Giovanellos hosted the first one.  The theme for that evening was "Italian", fitting since Kelly is a great Italian cook; her meatballs are the best I have ever had!!  The Giovanellos provided the pasta and her yummy meatballs and we provided the appetizers; pizza dip and Totinos for the kids, which by-the-way were HORRIBLE.  The Hodgkinsons brought salad, the Arsenas brought a variety of breads. and the Wessons brought some delicious desserts all made by Chad.  It was certainly a feast!!

We all learned a new trick that night, one that I had pinnned on Pinterest just days before.  Stick a wooden spoon on the top of the pot, and the water will never boil over.  Who knew??
Let's eat...Yummy!!

All the girls took their places and dug-in for a delicious dinner.

The guys didn't mind eating in the living room and watching basketball in front of the TV.    

While the adults conversed (well, the women gabbed and the men watched more basketball), the kids took over the whole house.  They played in the playroom, dressed up, played hide-and-seek and created their own band with instruments.

Emerson and Melania, such cute princesses!!

It was a great night, with fantastic food, good friends, great conversation and great playtime for all the girls.  We are so happy to be a part of this group and to continue these dinners.

  1. I was just wondering about the wooden spoon trick the other night. I'm definitely going to have to test it out now.
