I want to play hostess way more this year. I get really, really excited to have an excuse to "plate" things (like veggies!), and try new recipes. Plus having all my friends come to my house means I can wear slippers the whole time. I know it means we're getting old and lame - but at least it seems to be something we've all agreed on -- and it also makes us enjoy a night out at a bar that much more.
Tonight was Rose Bowl - with veggies (look at those cherry 'matos!), mimosas and jalapeno cream cheese dip (the.best).
