This past weekend, my husband invited his former boss and his wife over for dinner. We love having dinner parties because we have an 8 foot long harvest table in our dining room. The hubs' dad built it as a wedding gift to us. It's my favorite piece of furniture and it's perfect for entertaining, plus I love to cook! We put out a mini bar consisting of white and red wine, Gin, Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels, tonic water and sodas as mixers. I stuck with red wine for the night. I love a good merlot! I even pulled out the crystal glasses to use!! Check out my mini-phalaenopsis on the left. Can you believe this is still blooming? I bought this plant back in Feb. 18th. So awesome, I'm so in love with this orchid!!
dad makes it. I wasn't sure if I should peel the shrimp before boiling it. I ended up not peeling it, boiling the shrimp, then peeled it afterwards. I think it works better that way, because then the shrimp doesn't curl up too much.
