Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Leftovers and A Show

Written by Patti on August 27th, 2009

After a long day of work, Eric and I just wanted to chill last night. We got that and so much more.

At the end of the workday, I found a multitude of candles all over the house and brought them into the kitchen and lit them. The champagne flutes were taken from their cabinet and a bottle of bubbly was cracked. We enjoyed a very simple dinner of creative leftovers that consisted of a fresh spring salad with grilled pork from Sunday’s supper along with the last bit of that delicious squash casserole from the same dinner with Jeff. We ate at our marble island, standing up, drinking bubbles and sharing our day’s experiences.

We could hear torrents of thunder outside and did not want to miss the show. We took the champagne and candles outside and watched the most spectacular lightening and thunder storm, all the while commenting on the shapes of the clouds, like two kids laying in the grass on a summer afternoon. The lightening and thunder morphed into an amazing summer shower and eventually we were forced inside.

Remember to treat yourself as your own special guest. Even leftovers can be sexy.

xoxo, Patti
