Ladies that Lunch

Yesterday I had a small group of my lady friends over for lunch. It was super fun and so nice to see everyone. Thanks ladies for driving so far to join me for the afternoon.

I made the following:
Poinsettia Cocktails
Creamy Tomato Soup
Spinach and Gruyere Quiche
Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Quiche
Mixed Green Salad with almonds and pomegranate
Caramel Crumble Bars with Vanilla Ice Cream
I was on my A Game on Saturday, made the soup (just didn't blend it), made the crusts for the quiches, made the dessert and prepped all the veggies for the quiches. Sunday, all I had to do was bake the quiches, blend the soup, set the table (which I love), have a cocktail and have a good time with my friends. The best part...I rented the table, chairs, linens, flatware, glass wear and china so all I had to do was fold up, rinse out and shake off and return back to Classic Party Rentals. I would do it again in a heartbeat, it is worth it. When the lunch was over, all I had was the salad bowl with serve ware in it to wash which was wonderful!

After lunch I gave everyone a little personalized gift (don't say what it is in the comments please - I have a couple more to hand out). Around 4 PM everyone headed home and I had the evening to put the living room back together and watch the tube with Tim. What a great weekend!

Katie, I had a blast and it's always nice to see the rest of the beach house gang!! Thanks for posting the recipes too! I'm still not good at making my own pie crusts and such, but working on it :) And I totally stole your corks as pot holders idea for my lids as well.

Love ya!

PS - I'm super behind on your blog but catching up on this lazy Monday at work!
