Dinner Party

Arturo with his dessert of choice - Worms in Dirt. It was a HUGE hit with the kids.

We had a fun dinner party Saturday night. It's been awhile since we entertained a big group. What was so amazing is how the 8 kids (ages 4-13) got along sooooo well and they'd never met before! Seriously, the 8 of us adults enjoyed a very nice dinner at the dining table while the kids played outside for way more than an hour without incident. It was a lot of fun.

I work with the dads - Arturo, Miles, and Matt. They're a really fun group and their wives are delightful. And their kids - so great.

The menu: salmon with pesto, filet mignon, black bean salad, mote (Ecuadorian hominy dish), salad, and some very delicious desserts. The kids enjoyed hot dogs, homemade macaroni and cheese, and baked beans.

I love this town because there are so many "transplants" - it's very easy to make friends because so many of us aren't from here. And there's an automatic kinship in being new to town.

Wow, your menu sounds fabulous - I'm sure everyone enjoyed it.

The worms in dirt is cool - although I don't usually see adults eating it. LOL
