I am a 40 something year old wife to one, mother of two. One girl and one boy. By the way, did I mention that the kids have both left for college....need I say more!?!? I work full time, outside of the home and try my hardest everyday to adjust from having a full house to an empty nest!!
A few weeks ago, I went over to my friend Melissa's house and acted as a "sub" for our other friend's Bunco group. It's kind of a long story...but in hopes of trying to make a long story short (which you all know I am not very good at...LOL!!) our friend Julie has a new puppy at home so, Melissa offered to have it for Julie at her house. Hey, that was easier than I thought!! LOL!!
Anyway, I had such a good time!! So much in fact, that in the past few weeks, Melissa and I have since started up our own group. At first I was nervous that nobody would be interested but let me tell you, it has turned out to be a hit!! We are up to 18 regulars and 10 subs. CRAZY I know!!
So, on Saturday April 25, I will be hosting our FIRST Bunco night!! I have to admit I am both a little nervous and excited. I just hope I can fit that many card tables in our family room and that it turns out to be a hit. Nobody likes to throw a bad party!!
Since there are so many of us we each only have to host one month out of the year...maybe less!! And we all took a vote and we decided that the hostess for that month will be the one to provide all of the food vs. each player bringing a dish each time. That way, you only have to worry about preparing something whenever it is your month. But we did vote that each player brings their own drink of choice.
I am not sure what to make to eat though....whenever Melissa hosted it, her and Julie (since technically she was having it for her) went with a "Mexican" theme. They made both beef and chicken enchiladas, salsa, guacamole and chips and they even had the makings for margaritas.
What do you all think!?!?! Do you all think I should make a "dinner" type of meal. Maybe some lasagna, salad and garlic bread? Or should I just make various appetizers? Help!!!!
If any of you play Bunco and have any suggestions for food or even ideas to make the night (or the Bunco group for that matter) go smoothly please let me know!! I really want this to be a FUN night!! Especially since this was all my idea...I want it to be a hit!!
