Good Friends + Good Food = Good Times

With busy summer schedules a potluck feast with friends was long overdue. It started with lots of appetizers; kalmatas and green olives, hummus, lovely spicy sweet tangy peppadews, brie wrapped with puff pastry and chutney and another appetizer I threw together at the last minute from epicurious using the rest of the puff pastry filled with feta cheese and sundried tomatoes (I'll make those again!), italian proscuitto, guacamole, salsa and chips and a good french red wine.

We started to get too full from appetizers, but we managed to have a bowl of our next course, a lovely soup made with chick peas, potato and red peppers (sorry forgot to get a picture, too much wine, lol) then we were definitely too full for our main course of chili! Lucky for us it's one of those things that tastes even better the next day! yum, perfect for this chilly fall weather.

Our dessert was moist and yummy pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting, I need this recipe Megan!


  1. This looks wonderful!!! Y'all eat way better than I do! : ) The best part of this is the lovely smiling faces.

  2. Wow! Sorry I missed that meal. (And it's true I don't miss many meals.)
    Glad you were able to get way and enjoy the friendship.

  3. I just finished some dessert but these pics made me hungry all over again for dinner!!! YUM! I preordered your new DVD!!! Can't wait!!!

  4. I had a great time as always and I would like the recipe for the soup. I enjoyed the chili the next day and have thought about the soup on that same day:-)
