Last night I hosted a dinner gathering for our little sewing group. I always have the autumn one as this is my favorite time of year. I am pretty sure this is our 6th year of having these dinner/sewing gatherings. We take turns having them at each other's homes. We have appetizers, wine, dinner and then we hand sew until we get tired enough to go home. The menu last night consisted of Butternut squash and apple soup, broccoli and cheese quiche, mushroom and spinach quiche, mixed salad greens, and pumpkin pie and caramel banana cake served with hot tea for desert. Appetizers were served ahead of the meal, three cheese and onion dip with veggies and hot garlic, onion and asiago cheese dip with crackers. I think we all had a great time. I don't think I'll be able to eat until tonight. I am still full :)
