Dinner Club

Each month...six friends meet for great food and good times! I'll get to how Dinner Club went last night in a few minutes. But first, the rundown...

The Jaegers hosted and made the appetizers and entree. The Shalins brought over tasty beverages, and the Shooks were in charge of dessert. Here's how it broke down:

Theme: Wedded Bliss (The Shooks and Jaegers celebrated June anniversaries)

Stuffed Mushrooms
Love Mussels
Baked Brie

First Course:
Italian Wedding Soup

Main Course:
Pasta Primavera (w/wo chicken)

Coconut Angel Food Cake

Wine and...
The Perfect Peartini
2 oz. pear vodka
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1/2 oz. amaretto
1/4 oz. lemon juice
Shake, serve, enjoy!

Let's see...words to describe last night's Dinner Club...phenomenal, overwhelming, gluttonous. Not quite sure if Carrie got the memo that Dinner Club has six members...not twelve. She prepared enough food for a Man vs. Food after-party. My goodness...I'm hungover this morning...from the food! Here's the deal though...everything was five-star restaurant quality. And don't get me started with the dessert. Oh...the dessert! The Shook's cake would have brought a fat man to tears.

Dinner Club is on an auto-pilot of greatness. Warren got some nice cigars, which the guys enjoyed on the deck. Carrie got anniversary gifts for the couples (framed pictures from our weekend trip a few months back). The Peartini got the party started and kept it rolling. Conversation spanned from Going Green to the oil spill to cloth diapers to haunted houses.
