I don’t remember exactly when or how it started. I mean I kind of remember.
The babies were itty bitty. And my friends, Briya and Miss wanted to come over to visit the cutest twins ever born. And there happened to be an award show on? The Oscars maybe? I don’t remember. Mama Brain.
And then they came over again the next award show. Because hey, we like an excuse for a party!
And now it’s a thing. And we moved to a bigger place. And the babies are not itty bitty anymore. And more people come.
But for me, not only is it an excuse to have fun visiting with my friends.
But it’s an excuse to show my friends love through my cooking. And trying new recipes.
Oh and there’s some wine. Or margaritas. Or something.
This is how we did the Emmys.
Appetizers – chips, salsa from Fresh & Easy, and my homemade guacamole; figs with honey goat cheese wrapped in prosciutto; salami, white cheddar cheese and sea salt crackers.
Dinner – Tostadas made with my slow cooked Mexican roast and all the fixings
Dessert – chocolate cupcakes with caramel cream cheese frosting
I love the tradition we created!
