So I’m missing my bff’s…I am planning a proper tea for us ladies…yea ok..I have a kick ass chick menu for a girls get together that is easy delish!
First my thoughts go to a gathering in the living room with soft throws and big fluffy pillows. I have a list of goodies and here they are..
Wine,Fainting Goat from Franklin Hills Winery,Bangor,Pa…. It is a black cherry wine. Fainting Goat is addicting,take it slow…
Guinness,tried and true ladies,you can’t go wrong.
Cheese,ok so cheddar is a great go to,however I do like cream cheese with smoked paprika rolled in chopped pecans.Any salted cracker will do.
Popcorn! A microwave bag of popcorn seasoned with black pepper and pink himalayan salt.
Flat bread Margarita pizza,I buy Brooklyn Bred,yes that is how it’s spelled..I put alittle olive oil on my Bred and add,chopped plum tomatoes and fresh basil.I do add chopped garlic,but some people aren’t big garlic fans.Bake at 400 until tomatoes are soft (15 minutes-give or take).
Now for the most important part..DESSERT!!
Grab a boxed chocolate cake..Substitute half of the water with sour cream..and the other half of the water with coffee..make sure it’s cooled.bake as suggested on box.
So chill your bowl(metal works best) in freezer for about 10 minutes
Add 1 and 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon of confectionery sugar
1 shot of Godiva chocolate liqueur
Now mix with beaters,start on medium and then increase.
Whip until soft peaks form,it should not be runny …if it is beat a little longer
Frost your cooled cake
I would make this the show piece and put it in the middle of the coffee table along with all the other treats.
You can do the norm and watch Netflix…or you can do something that will deepen your bond with your friends…make a chicks bucket list…it would be awesome to learn more about my friends and maybe help them achieve their list. I can say one of mine would be to go on a whale watching cruise and go for a authentic New England seafood dinner.I’d love to share this experience with my friends.Lets face it,anyone can have friends…but best friends who always have your back are hard to come by..Cherish them.
