My First LA Dinner Party
"One cannot have too large a party." -Jane Austen
Last night my two roommates and I threw a little dinner party at our house. There were 7 guests. When I moved in, I brought a large nice dining room table and matching chairs so it was fun to finally put all of that to good use.
I wanted it to be simple so I just made tacos. We had a ton of veggies, ground turkey, falafel for the vegetarians, black beans, lentil soup and my roommate Gina's amazing guacamole. There was plenty of wine, soft music in the background and mood lighting provided by candles.
If you weren't at this dinner party, you'll be at the next one as the girls and I plan to do this much more often so stay tuned. : )
The funniest thing happened before any of the guests even arrived...
So I was cutting up a few jalapeno peppers (some people like to experience pain during dinner), I threw them into bowl and then went to itch my nose-BIG MISTAKE! Within seconds, my nose felt like it was on fire! I've never felt this kind of stinging pain before ever. I tried to ignore it for awhile, as I had a dinner to get ready and didn't have time to worry about my 'hot' nose! But it kept getting worse... my roommates quickly started offering me advice and then resorted to checking Google. The first thing that popped up that sounded reasonable enough was to dunk my nose into a bowl of milk which is exactly what I did. Of course, this moment just had to be captured on camera. It totally worked so if you ever find yourself in a similar situation then I highly suggest doing this.
