Official Dinner Invitation Plus Dessert Menu

I’m still working diligently on putting together all the menus but I wanted to pause to give the official invite list. These are the people who I consider friends and attended the 2010 dinner or have frequented this blog and commented in the last six months of last year and did not request to have their names removed from the invite list. If your name is here and you don’t want it, let me know. If it is not here and you would like to feast with us, let me know that too. Let Tom know. Sorry if I don’t know your last name.

So I’ve been working on the menus and decided that since cupcakes are so popular or en vogue, I would just make several varieties and let the last course be buffet style. You can have as few or as many as you like. I’ve been practicing with my decorating skills! Here are four of your dessert choices. Cookies and cream, Vanilla with Strawberry Preserves topped with Vanilla Strawberry Buttercream, Chocolate Caramel Cupcake topped with Vanilla Buttercream, Caramel Drizzle and Pomegranate Seeds. I hope this whets your appetite and you are still looking forward to dinner.

Another Dinner Party; An Invitation

After careful consideration and many requests I have decided to host another dinner party — and yes, it is the very same kind of Dinner Party I had last year. Last time I sent out invitations and threw a huge surprise at the end. An unwrapping of sorts. This year I am not sending out invitations. This year everyone is invited (that means a frequent visitor or commentor) not really everybody!

Last year’s dinner was just for people on my blogroll. Several of my more frequent visitors who were not on my blogroll felt left out. I had to create a special meal just for them last minute. If you’ve ever had the honor of hosting a party for family and friends, you know how last minute changes can really throw you off your game. Nonetheless, things went well.

Next year’s party will also have a purpose bigger than just food and fellowship. The dinner party will be on Friday, February 24th and we will have a mini conference on blogging all day Saturday the 25th. If you are coming and have special dietary needs, I would like to meet them. Gluten-free, allergies, vegetarian, vegan, even lactose intolerant.

Air fare is on me. Your job (assuming you accept it) will be to uninvite yourself if you do not want the invitation extended your way. Not that it matters, but I will not be offended if you choose not to partake in this get together.

If you are a little confused, this is a virtual dinner party. Please don’t really show up at my home. I will not be prepared for that unexpected encounter! Many of you are either dating, engaged, or married. Unfortunately my dining room table and my imagination for creating specialized menus is limited. The invitation is just for you and not your significant other.

For comments of course use the comment section, to be removed from the guest list, please use the contact page. Bon appétit.

RSVP, You Are Invited To My Blogroll Dinner Party


Have you ever wanted to meet some of the wonderful people you have on your blogroll. To see them face to face and put the face together with the blog you read so often. Have you ever wondered if you would like these people once you meet them or be disappointed? I don’t expect to be disappointed, but I can’t help but think about people who have met their favorite movie star or singer and were put off by the real person and not the persona’s they project on TV or in the movies. Once again I’m straying from the topic of the post. I think often of my blogging friends, like I do my everyday friends. I like to cook and now April does as well. If I could invite everyone who is on my blogroll to a dinner party at my house, I would!



One day I would really like to meet all of you but in case that never happens I have decided to invite all of you to a faux dinner party and a movie. It’s early November that I am writing this post so if between now and the date of the party I add you to my blogroll, of course you are invited as well. Internet e-vitations are frowned upon for formal dining but since this is a fake dinner, out the window with etiquette. Besides, I heard somewhere that it’s my party and I can do what I want to! Come back December 1st to see what April and I have in prepared for you.

There is a huge twist to the evening that will be revealed only when you get here!
