A Wild Dinner Party

Last night, two friends--Mommy Goose and Miss L--threw me a dinner party. Mama and the kids were at a school function to celebrate reading, and so I would've spent the evening alone. Instead, we had a fabulous night. Miss L is a Wildtree consultant, meaning she sells these food products that are preservative-free and natural but also quick and easy (think Annie's for the Pampered Chef crowd). And Mommy Goose had hosted a Wildtree party, which I was unable to attend.

So they brought it here: French bread with dipping oils flavored with garlic or hickory or lemon or basil pesto; vegetables with creamy dill dip; sauces with garlic, basil, parmesan; pretzels dipped in ginger plum sauce and Thai sun butter sauce; even a creamy strawberry cheesecake dessert on graham cracker sticks. Flavorful. Fun. Which means, of course, I bought some (they left the leftovers for Mama to try, which was smart, because she chose a few to buy).

But besides all the tasty goodies, we had great conversation. About school (their sons will be going to kindergarten at Sis and Bud's school). Friends. Food. Instead of just an hour or so, they were here for three, and then only left because it was so late . . . even though they stopped several times for one more comment!

Really, a great night. Thanks, ladies!
