Pumpkin Dinner Date

Apparently, I am a girl with many traditions. My future children are either going to love me or hate me for it. One of my many traditions is around Halloween time, I make Sassy Salsa Pumpkin Soup and everyone gets to eat it out of a little pumpkin bowl. Why? Because I think it's fun. How often do you get to use a pumpkin for a bowl? I have been doing it for a few years now and everyone seems to think it's fun.

This year I did the dinner with my roommates and we all decided to invite a date. I love that with my new roommates, we always have guys over at our place and people love coming over all of the time and people stop by all the time. This is how I love having my home. So refreshing. The roommates and I bonded while cooking in the kitchen together in cute aprons. I made the soup, Sarah made the salad (we put her in charge of salads forever because she makes the best salads) and bread and Megan made a yummy maple cake.

Sarah invited one of her many suitors (Chris? I don't know... I can't keep track of all the guys in her life), Megan invited her boyfriend Ben... and I of course invited Dave. For those of you that have been reading my blog for a long time... he is the one that I used to refer to as "FHE Boy". We all had a nice chat over a nice dinner. I feel like I need to have dinner parties more often. I like cooking for people. I like having people over. I also like being festive. So... this was a win win situation. Hopefully there will be more dinners like this in the future.

What a fun idea! I really wish we would've been roommates. I think we would have had a lot of fun together. And ok, um, so are you and dave...dating? or just friends?

I want to be dating... but we are not quite there yet I guess. I'm waiting on him. Although we pretty much act like we are dating without the title.
