What a busy weekend. With the help of a few neighbors we started a monthly dinner club and this past Saturday was our first dinner at our house. 6 couples doesn’t sound like a lot until you realize my dishes are all sets of 8 not 12 and umm where’s everyone gonna sit? Well, it all worked itself out and we had a great time! Since I was hosting we where in charge of the main dish. We made my super easy turkey. I didn’t realize there’s less of a variety in sizes when it’s not Thanksgiving and ended up with a 22 pounder! All went well and I can’t wait for next month’s dinner, the theme is Mexican and I’m in charge of a soup or salad. I’m thinking it’ll be a tortilla soup yummy! So to kick off the week I’m gonna start with a cocktail.
I will say this, it was tasty, but it was also really strong so it’s a slow sipper one.
We extended the Jack Daniel’s Charcoal and Smoker Blocks giveaway to end this Thursday so if you haven’t entered yet be sure to click HERE for details.
