It's become a weekly tradition now between two of my good friends and I; where we trade off getting together at either one's place to rant about our lives, watch movies, snack on cheese and other goodies. This week I hosted. I love being able to throw together a little party, even if the guest list only reads two people. I get a kick out of putting together food dishes and it's nice to be able to enjoy good company amongst good food. I have to give all the credit to my Mom for showing me how to be a good host (Thanks Mom!). Whenever we had company over my Mom always made sure the house looked its best and the food was at its best. When I was young I would take mental notes as I watched my Mom prepare the house for company and I still use what I learned today.
