Hey everyone…. sorry I’ve been M.I.A. for a few days.  Now that the kids are finished school for the summer, my workload seems to have increased tenfold.  The veranda renovations are taking up a lot of my time; check back later this week for an update on that project.

So any-who, last weekend Mike (my husband, for those of you just tuning in) and I had dinner with an old friend and her boyfriend, and had such a great time, that all I can think about is when we’re going to do it again.

Now if you knew me better, you would know that I love to bake, but I really, really don’t enjoy cooking. Maybe it’s because it’s become a chore, or maybe it’s because at least one of my ungrateful offspring will complain about what I’ve made.  The only time I do enjoy cooking is when I’m trying a new recipe, or when I’m entertaining, which is a very rare occurrence.

Since it’s our turn to have our friends and their kids for dinner next, I’ve been dreaming up dinner ideas that would be tasty, and fun for the kids.

So here are a few of my ideas so far:
Pizza Party

Our family always has pizza on Friday nights, and my kids just love when I deviate from our usual frozen pizza, and let them make their own personal pizzas.  I start by making fresh pizza dough, and then let my imagination run wild with sauces and toppings. 

Shish Kabob Party

I also thought that since it’s BBQ season, maybe we could have a shish kabob party.  I’m thinking chicken, beef, shrimp, tofu, and lots of fresh fruits and veggies.  

Or maybe we should just skip dinner, and have a……
Cupcake Party

So what do you think?  Any other ideas for an interactive dinner party?  I’d love to hear your ideas!
