A Fall Night with Friends

I am SO HAPPY to report to the blogsphere that the rain has stopped in North Central Louisiana!!! The older I get, the more I enjoy a rainy day, and of course am grateful for the benefits of it. However, ENOUGH was enough :)
Because we had all been cooped up for so long, it was really nice to have our supper club dinner out on the patio Saturday night. Preston went to his Grandfather's farm for the night, and we spent the day getting ready for the party. I really enjoy entertaining and love cooking so this is right up my alley. I think dinner turned out ok--all you cooks out there will understand that you don't really taste the food when you have cooked it. The biggest hits were the brown-sugar brie served with pear, and my signature cocktail for the night, a brandy smasher. The only minor problem was that I did not buy QUITE enough pork tenderloin...but I had plenty of Krispy Kreme bread pudding....
So, thanks to Katie and Cullen, Nancy and Trotter, and MaryAnne and Brian for another fun night!! I can't wait for our next meeting!
