I have really amazing cooks for friends. Next time I'm totally implementing a theme or secret ingredient, because these people brought it. Here is a list of what people brought:
Vegetarian baked ziti with sausage and pepperoni
Chicken pâté with black sesame Wasa crackers
Deviled eggs with homemade mayo and smoked salmon
Mixed fruit with a cinnamon honey and creme fraiche
And a double layer triple chocolate cake with fried strawberries
Plus my awesome boyfriend brought 40 different kinds of beer and 3 bottles of hard liquor.
There was much laughing and playing with the doggy, who was very well behaved. And we played on the pole for a while as well. Team Deviled Egg took first place because they put crazy amounts of effort into 3 dishes, but everyone won something.
Plus I got sex before AND after the party, so I win the party.
