For the first time in years, I followed through with a New Years’s resolution!
I had my first sofa dinner party of 2012!
And this my friends, is what we had for dinner: Vegetarian Pad Thai with Spicy Lime-Peanut Sauce, Spicy Cilantro Shrimp, wine, and big bowls of M & M’s! (Yep. Dessert really was M & M’s!)
Back in the day, my girls and I would order take-out Thai food and get 1-pound bags of milk chocolate and/or peanut butter M & M’s for dessert. I know, so fancy!
So years later, the Thai food is homemade, we’ve graduated to the dark chocolate M & M’s, and the friendships are still cherished!
What are you doing this weekend? Call some friends you haven’t seen for a while and catch up over some great food!
