Imaginary Dinner Party

I saw this meme over at Rob’s World, and I just had to join in.  What fun!

1.  You are having a dinner party, and you can invite any four couples.  Who would you invite?

Jena and I had joked around about being related because we’re so similar.  However, when we discovered we have the same maiden name, we realized we actually might be distant cousins! Also, I think Brian and Ed would get along because they have a shared interest in tractors and equipment. 

(I won’t steal one of her photos, since I’m pretty sure they’re copyrighted.)

I’d really just like to meet them and hear stories about their ranch.  I think we’d get along well, if they’d be willing to travel this far.  Maybe Ree could give me some tips on, oh, cooking, photography or blogging.  Plus I think they’d get along well with Brian and Jena, too.  We’d let them bring their cutie-pie “punks” as well.

  • My Mom and Dad

You can bet that if I had both Jena and PW here, my mom would be crashing, so I may as well invite her.  My mom would love to talk to Jena and PW about anything and everything.  Plus, my dad, Brian and MM could talk about their farms.

  • My brothers

Do they count as a couple?  Well, Jon and Nate would also crash the dinner party, so I’m using them as my last couple.  They wouldn’t miss the chance to discuss tractor pulling with Brian and MM, and they also think both Jena and PW are hot (Well, PW for an old married lady.  Their words, not mine).

2.  What would you serve?

  • Appetizers: I’d go with some fresh seafood as a treat for the land-locked visitors: grilled clams, mini crabcakes, sea scallops wrapped in bacon.
  • Main Course: Well, we’ve got some meat-eaters here.  I’m thinking I might have to just pull out all the stops and cook up some Prime Rib, mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, creamed spinach, and a wedge salad with homemade ranch dressing.

3.  What wine would you serve?

  • We’re not wine-drinkers here.  I’d be sure to have plenty of beer on hand, some lemonade and iced tea.

4.  What’s for dessert?

Your turn!

  1. I loved this idea! I did it too. Thanks for the link!

  2. Mmmm, I think I’d have to crash too!

  3. Jena

    Lmao right now just imagining it. I thought I clicked on my own blog for a minute when I saw that pic. So this sounds like a great idea, what time should we all be there!? 😉

    Oh, how are your brothers responding to being called a couple? I can only imagine they’re loving it.

  4. I think this might turn more into a picnic than a dinner party with all the crashers…

    And I don’t think my brothers have seen that I called them a couple yet…

    Jena, hope you don’t mind I borrowed your pic.

  5. Grilled clams! I love clams, especially from Connecticut. And mini crabcakes. . . great menu!

  6. Oh my gosh, I’m right there with Jena laughing my you-know-what off!!! You know I’d be crashing this party, Abbie, because my favorite people would be there, so thanks for the invite, Ab!

    I wouldn’t be too concerned about the food because the company would overpower all, but let the guys have their meat and they’d be happy.

    Let’s DO this! I’m penciling this in on my calendar; oh, what the heck, I’m using MAGIC MARKER!

    Great guests, tasty food – can I come!!???? Or can I at least sneak in and steal some apple crisp? 🙂

  8. Well, that settles it. It’s a big picnic. Everyone’s welcome 🙂
