On Fridays I look forward to having friends and family over to our house. Nick and I both love to cook together and so I get to spend good time with Nick cooking and then having our sweet friends over to enjoy it with us. We recently bought this pasta maker from Sur La Table and we have used it every weekend since we bought it. We first tried our hand at lobster ravioli and it turned out DELICIOUS! (I made the noodles a little too thick but it was my first time!). I will make them again and post the recipe!
When I throw more formal dinner parties, I like to give everybody a little happy to take home with them. Party favors shouldn’t just be for little kid birthday parties. Fun ideas might be: a package of homemade mini chocolate chip cookies, a jar of homemade infused olive oil, a live succulent or tulip plant, or a cool flask. Personally, I like the homemade gifts the best, but I don’t always have time to make things like that, so finding a nearby home goods or floral shop is handy in case I need a few quick gifts.
What do you look forward to on Fridays?
XOXO – Em
