On Sunday evening we had friends over for a wine and cheese.
In the afternoon I baked pumpkin cupcakes with a salted caramel butter cream.
I also made a chocolate dump cake using this recipe, but after taste testing it, I decided it was sub-par, and not good enough to serve. It just tasted like an average chocolate cake.
I froze it for the hubby to eat with ice-cream.
I set the table with an assortment of cheeses, cheese fondue, crackers, bread, olives, pickles, cheese, sausage, and the cupcakes.
I used some of the new platters that we had the hubby's aunt bring us home from Mexico. She lives there, and offered to get us a whole bunch of dishes. We gave her $300 and asked her to get what she could for that. We got a complete place setting for 12, as well as numerous serving dishes.
I am pretty pumped about them!
I donned a pink dress, and pretty feather in my hair (I am thinking of wearing the feather clip for my sister's wedding with soft curls - what do you guys think?)
We put out fresh flowers, lit some candles, opened a bottle of wine, and spent the evening visiting, laughing, and eating with both old and new friends.
Today was a holiday for Canadians (Victoria Day), but tomorrow we are back at work.
How was your weekend?
Have you ever been to or hosted a wine and cheese party?
