Among Friends Thursday - A "Girly" Day with Friends

Another Among Friends feature starring my hometown friends and Jennifer's Chicken Mushroom Casserole (pg. 39), that is. My friend NeeCee and two of her sweet daughters understand that having all boys, I don't get many frilly things in my life. They shipped their guys off, and invited me over last Saturday for a girly day, complete with a pretty luncheon, tea party, and a fun time doing our designer nails. What a treat! She even photographed the dishes for me.

NeeCee had told me how tasty Jennifer's casserole was. My men don't care for many mushrooms, so I had not made this recipe, refusing to allow all the mushrooms to go to waste. NeeCee made it for me though, and it was delicious. Even better on her gorgeous china. Knowing Jennifer prefers beautiful place settings, I am betting she appreciates seeing her recipe done up with style. The curry and mustard flavor the dish wonderfully; just the right amount. The almonds, which were slivers here rather than sliced, added the perfect crunch. I think either style is a great addition to the casserole. We had a nice salad on the side, and some of my Snow Capped Chocolate Muffins topped with whipped cream for dessert.


After doing our nails with flowers and butterflies, we went back for more. The girls served a delicious cinnamon tea. I will have to pass the brand along to you when I track some more down. I want a can of my own. It was great with the chocolate muffins/cupcakes that I brought. What a fun day we had--so much so that we are planning another one at my house so I can break out some fancy tableware too.

I am thinking I might try Carolyn's Eggplant Rollatini with Bechamel Sauce when the next girly day is at my house. What would you choose out of our cookbook? If you don't have it yet, just click on the photo of it to the right and it will take you where you need to go. I promise there is something for every occasion in there. Girly menus and man pleasing meals too. So gather some of your close friends and practice hospitality. It feels so good to be among friends.

A tropical paradise theme:

Jennifer's Margarita Mocktails to start.
Your Coconut Apricot Chicken.
Judy's Coleslaw, with a few added pineapple bits.
And for dessert, Jennifer's Banana Cream Pie.

Yum!
