Great Night with Friends

Getting together with friends can be difficult with all that goes on in our lives - birthday parties, family obligations, events, work, and all the activities the kids have going on. And then when you finally do get together - with families - you know what happens...someone is always running after a child and you wind up having half conversations before you have to chase a child around the room begging them to let you change a diaper or eat their food or share a toy.

So we opted for a night at home with friends without kids. What a great time. It was a perfect night with great friends, good eats, and lots of laughs.

Here's the menu:

* Orzo with Feta, Cherry Tomatoes and Herb Butter
* Fried Artichokes
* Vegetable Gratin

Dessert* Frozen Black Bottom Peanut Butter Pie
