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.
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.
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.
