Girls Cooking Night In

Girls night in was a blast!!!
(I have not had time to load the pictures to my blog but hopefully tonight.)

If you have never done this you should its a great way to get to know your friends better and slow life down.

The night was a HUGE success and we plan to do this again rotating homes. Should be fun, of course mindful of the holiday season.

I arrived at 3.30pm the guest arrived at 4pm and I left at 10.45pm the girls were still there. We did nothing but cook together and prep, slice and dice and chat and get to know each other better.

Looooved it!

Just a slow long lingering meal that was perfect and timed just right.
Cocktails at 4-5 while prepping. Apps were served at 5.15 and then the entree was at 5.45. the meal lasted about an hour, talking and eating.

At 7pm we began the crepes, prepping and cooking took until about 7.30pm just in time to eat them feeling a lot less full, having an hour and a half after dinner. It actually went really fast as each person was doing something to help.

We created them, masterpieces and finished eating them by 8.30pm and then began cleaning up the kitchen. After that we settled in on the couch by about 9.45pm, with me leaving an hour later.

So your may are the numbers and BOY are they HIGH! (so plan ahead on your day so you can have these treats I may have this a little under since I had a bit of the cream sauce)

Got a lot accomplished. I had piles everywhere from being out of town. Then appliances my mom had gave me and tools that had to be sorted and put away all took time.
Cleaned the entire fitness studio, and hauled all the weights around, vacuumed and toted up and down the steps all the things to go in the garage or out of the studio.

I feel fabulous for getting my life back in order!
