The Swoosh and Hum

Wednesday night and all is quiet but the swoosh and hum of the dishwasher.  We had friends over for dinner, dessert, and board games.  We had a delightful time!

Dinner was Chicken Divan over rice and garlic bread.  Dessert (made by my friend) was a delicious cheesecake topped with raspberries.  Coffee and tea were served with dessert.

We chose to play Apples to Apples!  It is a great game to play with old friends and new. ♥

Little Bear was not pleased being left upstairs while we enjoyed dinner.  She loves people so much and was very happy to spend time with everyone after dinner.  No cheesecake for you, Little Bear!

    1. Barb, I am sort of dieting. My portions are smaller than I'd like but I'm still indulging with a few bites. xo

    1. Diane, it isn't my favorite game but it is a good ice breaker kind of game. Not competitive at all. Happy Friday evening to you! xo
