A Most Excellent Party

Back in January, I won a wine and cheese party at our school’s bingo night. The party was yesterday.

It was awesome! It was at a showroom for Kenwood Kitchens, Michele’s family’s business. They did an awesome job of arranging it. Thanks, Michele and everyone else! It was so fun!

At first I wasn’t sure I’d be able to fill up a party full of people, but in the end I had invited too many! There were some no-shows, so it turned out okay. I was nervous about being the only person who knew everyone there, but it was kind of fun. It made me feel important, and I never lacked for conversation.

This was the kitchen with all the food.

A kitchen showroom is the perfect location for a party. People tend to gather in the kitchen at parties anyway, and a showroom has a ton of kitchens! Wandering around looking at all the amazing cabinet and countertop combinations was really fun. I liked the traditional-looking kitchen with marble countertops. I should have taken a picture, but I was having so much fun I forgot.

One of my bingo table partners, Melissa, was having her birthday yesterday. I brought cakes. She can’t have gluten, so I looked for a flourless recipe. I found a really easy one, and made it. I couldn’t believe how cakey it was. And it was so chocolatey.

This is actually a picture of my test cake on Saturday.

There was a chef there, too. He was making hot appetizers. They were delicious! I especially loved the steak kabobs he made. They were so tender. He also made little cupcakes that had the most amazing topping on them. I mean, this topping is the best thing since Nutella. It’s Biscoff cookies ground up and made into a paste. I’ve only ever had Biscoff cookies while flying. It’s them or pretzels, and I usually choose them. This topping tasted just like them. And the chef told me where to get it. Awesome! Now I can eat cookies with a spoon.

    Hooray! Hooray!!! That party looks fantastic! You are completely right that a kitchen showroom is tops for a party. All those kitchens?? *sigh* The room for Rich Inner World wanderings is endless.

    Your cake looks incredible. I can’t believe that there is no flour in it – how on earth do the bubbles stay? You should post the recipe for my mom – she’s having gluten issues and this looks pretty dang good.

    Happy Day-After-Your-Party!

    Thanks for including the Freys in all this hoo rah – it was very enjoyable! ‘Course, it was driven home quite soon that our home has no room for any of the exciting cabinetry/appliances/sinks/counters/bowls/tubs/showers we saw there. Even if we knocked out all interior walls, our home would be nothing but kitchen and bathroom.

    Hmmm……

    …and I’ll second the “it was very chocolatey” comment – and I believe I hold the local degree in chocolatology, correct? ;-)

    You are so right Brad about having all those kitchens for a gathering. Dang, instead of getting new furniture recently, I should have just changed those rooms into kitchens.

    Thanks for inviting me too! It was indeed a blast! It was good to see friends I haven’t seen in a while …. and the food was so good! As was your flourless cake! It was like a fudgey fiesta in my mouth. It was really nice of you to make it for Melissa.
