It never seises to amaze me the fun that can be had when wearing n apron. Really you would not think that it would change the party at all. In actuality I always feel a little better when I wear one of my aprons. It is like the apron literally brightens my day.
A couple of nights ago I had a couple of people over to the house for my sister Shelley’s dinner. We were having a great time but it instantly got better the moment we got ready to start cooking. Shelley dawned a Gabriella which fit her to a tee. With its lace up back it was snug in all the right spots perfect for cooking in a sloppy kitchen, my kitchen tends to be just that while I am cooking. I decided to pull out an apron I have not worn in a while the Jillian. I love the wrap style so cute. Once we put our aprons on the party really started. we were laughing uncontrollably. Talking about pass silliness that took place. The time I wanted to get worms for my birthday too came up a couple of times. Mainly the question, why the heck would I want a bag of fishing worms, I have always hated fishing. Well, I never hated it I am not very good at it so why bother. I much preferred to lay and tan on the boat and talk so much that my dad would tell me I am scaring all the fish away. Well dad I say to bad ha ha ha.
We really had a great dinner with great food. The pork was perfect the mashed sweet potatoes were just sweet enough and the broccoli roasted with just enough sesame seed oil to add a great flavor. To bad we could not eat it all.
One of my favorite vegetables is Broccoli. So many people hate it but I really think it is done to over cooking it. I love to blanch the Broccoli then roast it with the oil. The oil really helps balance the flavors and bring out the sweetness of the Broccoli.
I really love having parties and cant wait to do this again soon. Great food, great friends, great fun. What else in this world do we even need.
