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

Well, No….I Didn’t Cook This Weekend

But that doesn’t mean I didn’t eat!

Friday evening started with london broil on the grill and salad. Great way to begin the weekend!

Saturday, after I returned from boxing class and while I was blow drying my hair, my darling Eric whipped up a delicious brunch of bacon, melon, eggs and bagels after turning the tv to the Gator game for me to enjoy. What an amazing man I am married to!

That night, we ventured out to midtown Atlanta for a night of burgers and comedy at the Vortex. Alack and alas, the comedy left something to be desired, but it was fun to get out and do something totally different.

Sunday we snoozed til 10 a.m., went to the Goodwill to pick up a great rug for the dining room (this really cut the noise down in there), over to Forsyth Fabrics to check out textiles for draperies and then a surprise visit to Flip. Ohhh, this was tasty! I had the bacon cheese burger and Eric had the farm burger, we shared the crispy, yummy fries and both had a milkshake – the foie gras milkshake for Eric and the nutella and burnt marshmallow shake for me. It was so good. And as the Falcons were playing in town, it was easy to get a seat at this very popular spot.

The evening was rounded out with potato chips and onion dip while watching the VMA awards.

It’s okay to give yourself time off – you can’t be expected to entertain ALL the time.

Have a wonderful week Darlings!

xoxo, Patti
