I'm a little late with my recap as I have been illin AGAIN! I am not sure how I am the one getting the barfy vomitty cooties, but I am. My hell began at 11:15 PM on Sunday. I have now successfully kept down 4 ice cubes and a glass of gatorade and it is 8:00AM Tuesday. I am going to start on some coffee in hopes that my dehydration headache will go away. The worst part was when Herr Hausfrau left for work on Monday 45 MINUTES EARLIER than he normally would (I think to escape the wretching noises.) I called him and told him to get his ass back here after I scared the children with a vomitting jag the second he left. What was he thinking? I couldn't even stand and he thought I could just feed, change and entertain the children without a problem at 6:30 in the morning?
Enough about that. Let's talk about my weekend!!! Our friends Stevo & Annie and Jeff & Allan came to stay with us. Yay! We are a group of friends who started having monthly dinner parties in Pittsburgh WAY before they became the vogue thing to do. We would choose a theme and research cookbooks and the internet to make authentic yummy dinners. And they were. Since we moved from Pittsburgh 4 1/2 years ago, the dinner parties have gone on without us and we have missed them dearly.
Our friends got in late Friday night and stayed until late Sunday morning. Our time was spent hanging out, looking at scrapbooks (Stevo & Annie just got back from Poland; Jeff & Allan are just back from Switzerland) eating, grocery shopping, drinking, cooking, watching tv, eating, gossiping and laughing. And eating. And worrying after Allan slipped and fell off our front steps and none of us heard his cries for help. His poor body was so jarred that he ended up going to bed and missing the whole dinner. And he had done a lot of the cooking. He missed his own heavenly dessert:
This WAS a White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. It was AMAZING! We forgot to take pictures of the actual dinner because we were so hungry we went at it like vultures and there wasn't much left.
While I like spending time with family, I feel there is nothing better than getting to spend time with good friends. My only problem is that I get selfish and don't want it to end.
