I decided to get the year started properly, with a “Breakfast for Dinner Party” last night. It was a great success, and the highlight was a make-your-own-waffle-bar. I set out a belgium waffle maker, and a friend whipped up Martha’s batter. I included a ladle and a timer and the guests were responsible for everything else. (The smoke alarm only went off once!!) The toppings were decadent: maple syrup, chopped pecans, whipped cream, Mexican caramel, strawberries and bananas. It was a great food activity and people were really engaged with their creations. The dinner was rounded out with a frittata, Peanut Butter Puffins, roasted potatoes, fresh fruit, and a custom bloody mary station. I hope that all my parties will be that much fun for the rest of 2010, and that yours will be too! Cheers!
