Simply Tasteful

Oy vey. So, I got into a little tiff with Geo tonight. It was one of those frustrating, "maintain your composure" things that left me...not wanting to be around men. It was a happy coincidence, then, that I had been invited to a Tastefully Simple party with loads of girls tonight.

Kim picked me up and was all "What's up your butt?" And I was all "Nothing. Men..." She understood immediately and said something like "Good thing we are going to a food-eating party!" She knows me so well.

What IS a Tastefully Simple party, you ask? Only the greatest party EVER. You go to someone's house, the "host" makes loads of crazy-good food that you eat in little bite-sized servings, then you drink wine, chit chat about things like Christmas decorations and Justin Bieber, and that's it! Well, okay, that's not IT. After you're stuffed full of nomnom food, you browse through a catalog of all the food you just inhaled and then you can buy said food.

Guys? I. Bought. Food. Tastefully Simple could make a killing off hosting parties for Girls Who Have Recently Argued With Their Boyfriend because we are a hungry group. I got: 3 beer bread mixes, some pomegranate chipotle sauce thing, a wonder food called "Garlic Garlic" (it's EXACTLY what it sounds like), beer cheese soup, and almond pound cake mix. I'm sure there were a few other things, but it was all ordered in a hazy, food-coma blur so I'm a little fuzzy on the details. I think that's how they "getcha".

Turns out I love parties that revolve around the serving, eating and then ordering of food. It's great fun. It was totally awesome meeting new friends, too. I accidentally took a shot at "people who live north of highway 394" and offended at least two women, though. Me and my big mouth...

Overall, it was a great night. Oh, and who knew you could make bread with BEER?! That's, like, two of the best food groups EVER! I have a feeling that I'll be having a Tastefully Simple party soon. I'll invite you guys, as long as you promise to come hungry...

Have a delicious weekend, everyone!

Wanna know the best part about beer bread? YOu dont actually have to buy it. :-) If you google it, you'll find a whole crapload of recipes for how to make different types of beer bread -- some with feta, dill, garlic, etc... SO GOOD!!! And super easy and fun!

Good tip, Jess! However, at this point, the idea of following a recipe is too daunting. Me no cook so well. Dumping a can of Premium into a mix that's delivered to my doorstep sounds like about as much cooking as I can handle!
