I’m missing my BFF’s so I thought I would plan a girls get together.Here is my list ladies…I am going to set my living room with soft throws and fluffy pillows…
Wine..A personal favorite is Fainting Goat from Franklin Hills Winery in Bangor,Pa. A delish black cherry wine..it’s addicting so pace yourself(comes from experience).
Guinness..tried and true,you can never go wrong with this.
Cheese..Cheddar is a great go to ,but I do like cream cheese flavored with smoked paprika and rolled in chopped pecans..any salted crackers will do..
Popcorn..microwave popcorn seasoned with sea salt and cracked black pepper
Fruit…raspberries,blueberries and sliced pears with a caramel dipping sauce(store made is quick and good)..
Flat bread Margarita pizza..so I buy Brooklyn Bred..yep that is how it is spelled..I brush a little olive oil on it and then add chopped plum tomatoes,fresh chopped basil,minced garlic with sea salt and pepper.Bake at 400 for about 15-20 minutes..
And now the most important part!!! DESSERT!!!!
Grab a boxed chocolate cake and replace the water with half sour cream and half coffee(make sure it’s cooled)..bake as suggested
Icing…Whipped cream..super easy ..start by chilling your bowl(metal works best)
1 and 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon of confectionery sugar
1 shot of Godiva chocolate liqueur
Put everything in the bowl and start out with your mixer on medium speed…then increase to high speed and whip until soft peaks form..be careful not to over beat..
Frost your cake!…I will make this my center piece on my coffee table..
So I can do the norm and watch Netflix…or I can do something fun and meaningful…
Give each lady paper and pen and ask them to make a Best Friends Bucket List..I think this a great way to learn more about each other and help each other achieve our bucket lists…One of mine is to rent a cabin in New England,do a whale watch, visit Salem and go out for an authentic New England seafood dinner with my besties..
We all have friends,but best friends are hard to come by and should be cherished..What better way to show them how much I love them, by feeding them and getting them tipsy!!!
