Let me start off this post by saying I wish I had taken more photos.
A few weeks ago some sweet new friends, Elisa and Dann, offered to host a pumpkin-themed shindig at their place in celebration of Halloween. In addition carving our own, Elisa made a to-die-for homemade butternut squash soup that she served in individually hallowed out pumpkins.
The rest of the menu was equally impressive. I keep trying to recall the pork & cinnamon apple main but I find myself skipping ahead and dwelling on thoughts about the chocolate pie dessert. Can I get an amen for pie?
It just makes me want to host my own dinner party soon. Has anyone found a decadent, crowd pleasing recipe winner recently? I am on a soup kick this fall. Anything pureed has a place in my heart…
Here’s to parties and purees (and photo booths and new friends),
