Tuesday evening dinner party

Tonight we had our friends Leanna and Adam over for dinner.

Leanna is one of those women that you meet and instantly feel like she could be your best friend. She is sweet, funny, and seriously one of the most stylish ladies ever. She walked in wearing this killer cobalt blue pea coat and we totally bonded over our shared love of cobalt blue. (Have I told you it's my new obsession?)

Adam and Jason have been best friends since 6th grade. (He's going to be best man at our wedding.) Adam is one of the funniest and most down-to-earth guys I've ever met. He's also a super talented singer-songwriter.

We feasted on a multi-grain baguette with olive oil + sea salt for dipping, sun-dried tomatoes, and Brie (though I didn't eat any Brie).

I think these sun-dried tomatoes (marinated in olive oil + herbs) are my new favorite food. I ate them with the baguette slices and they were sooo delicious.

Silly me - I forgot to take any pictures of our actual dinner. We ate whole wheat linguine with artichoke, spinach, and shrimp in a garlic/lemon/white wine sauce. I think we're going to have to make these little dinner parties a regular tradition.

P.S. I highly recommend having a dinner party on a Tuesday evening. It's quite a lovely way to perk up the middle of the week.

Looks like a wonderful dinner party! I love Brie and the sun-dried tomatoes look fabulous. I will have to try adding them to my list of appetizers. My hunny and I regularly have dinner parties in the middle of the week. I agree with you that they make for something to perk up the middle of the week.

So I'm kind of obsessed with the idea of a Tuesday Evening Dinner Party - it sounds like such a fabulous way to prepare for Wednesday morning. Leanna and Adam are such an adorable couple; and honestly, I don't blame you for being obsessed with cobalt blue - I love that color!

By the way, Brie and sun-dried tomatoes? Yum!! :)

What a lovely dinner party! Doesn't it make you feel like a real grown up when you have one? I'm 28 and I still need to find ways to feel like I've arrived at adulthood sometimes. :)

And I'm going to listen to your friend right now!
