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

Cure For Christmas

Written by Patti on December 27th, 2009

Hello, Darlings!

Oh, wasn’t Christmas wonderful? Show of hands – who drank a smidge too much champagne? Hmmm, that might be me.  What was needed the day after was some recuperation. And that is just what I got.

An entire day of sitting on the couch in jammies, cuddled up with the adorable quilt from Crystal, remote control in one hand, petting dogs with the other. Perfect. No champagne to speak of.  Eric fixed us a positively delicious salad midday and there were turkey sammies later that evening. Tons of water to drink and The Hangover on pay per view (hilarious and definitely appropos.)

The one treat we indulged in was another helping of that Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding from the night before. And we remembered to photograph it for you! Here you go:

Chocolate, Creamy, Crunchy Goodness!

Doesn’t that look yummy? It was! Although I had enough of everything the day before and could only manage a couple of bites. There are still two servings left…..

After all that rest we are ready to do it all over again. The party never stops around here (save for yesterday – even my phone didn’t ring!) So tonight it is a party with Clint in Castleberry with his fab friends Calvin and Steve at their awesome loft, tomorrow we are seeing Lady Gaga at The Fabulous Fox Theatre, Tuesday a Mead tasting at Leila and Shane’s…and that’s as far as I got. Except for the two parties on New Year’s Eve and our pajama party on New Year’s Day.

Enjoy your week!

xoxo, Patti
