Hen Party

on November 5, 2013

Anyone that knows my family knows that we love to cook and we love to entertain. My step –mom is always throwing get together with her girlfriends that she calls “Hen Parties”. Which consist of all her girlfriends and mine get together at our house and bring over different wines and hors d’oeuvres for us to try. We play games, gossip, dance, we just like to have a good old time. My dad was feeling left out especially with his recent retirement, so the women started to bring their husbands and the “men folk” would have their beer watch ESPN and do manly things.

This past weekend we had a Gumbo party. My dad made his famous gumbo which was the bomb. My mom made crab cake bites and well I made Chocolate and Peanut butter chip pretzel or walnut cookies. I made these cookies before with pretzels but my mom was not impressed so I made a batch with walnuts just for her. As people started to show up she was finishing up the final touches for the food. She fried some fish with homemade coleslaw and cut slices of store bought 7 up cake. I love 7 up cake it the top 3 cakes that stay on the top of my list. (Linda’s Fudge cake, Grandmother Apricot Brandy Pound Cake, and 7 up cake) I seriously would be the fattest person in the world if these cakes were in my house on a consistent basis.

As the night unfolded jokes were told and compliments to the chefs were made. They thought that we just sit around and cook all day. I have to say my weekends consist of baking and coming up with inspiration for some new baking ideas. Baking is my stress reliever and being praised on good food is always a plus. Here are some pictures of the awesome food!
