supper club, inaugural edition {life}

Before I tell you about our Supper Club, I have to thank you for all your kind comments on Tuesday's House Proud post. It's the first in what I hope will be a series of many. Your words meant so much to me and to Bill as well. I've responded to each of you in the comments section, and in case you're interested, that house is now on the market for just over $1.2M. It is, we think, is priced to sell!

Way back last fall, my friend Catherine and I concocted the idea of pulling together a supper club. We were having lunch together and brainstorming all sorts of things. She's a chef and I like to eat, so it made sense. We wanted people who weren't generally connected to each other, who loved food but didn't need to be great cooks (Catherine did manage to stack the deck, I will say) and who would take the event seriously enough to get together every six weeks or so. Our first meeting was November 17, 2012 (and I'm finally blogging about it). Because we were all meeting for the first time, we landed on a tapas or small bites theme. Everyone brought two small bites, or a small bite and a dessert. From here on out, the host will choose a theme and make the entree. It's up to everyone else to provide a supporting role!
