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

Cruising The Net

Good Morning Darlings!

Getting this etiquette business off the ground is exciting and exhausting all at the same time.

Whatever shall I make for dinner?

Summer Fiesta Salad from Lauren over at Lawfully Wedded Wife sounds like just the thing for this still very warm weather. What are your thoughts?

I need this.

Anna at Recipes of a Joyful Life is making this Spaghetti alla vodka. I think I will make it, too.

Anna is kicking it with Vodka!

There are our greens and our main. Now what? Dessert is what! Who’s cooking something tasty?

Good Gracious. Nicole and Trisha over at Heat Oven to 350F are making cinnamon bun cookies. WHAT? Shut the front door!

These look amazing!

Well, that should do it. If you love looking at food photos, head over to Foodgawker. I just like the food porn they are hawking over there.

xoxo, Patti

    For a while, penne a la vodka was my go to recipe for a dinner party. A recipe, oddly, from my mother’s dentist so we just called it dentist pasta. It was topped with a small dollop of black caviar. Just the supermarket kind, drained on a paper towel.

    Time to make it again! Thanks Patti.
