Like Martha Stewart, only with more eyeliner and an Hard Rock twist. :)

I'm having a dinner party tonight.  Like my sister, whose blog can be found on my links list under Emily and CW, I adore food.  Reading cookbooks, planning menus, shopping for food, preparing food...  hospitality is one of my things.  I love having people over, and I adore all the new ROOM we have in which to entertain.  Nolan loves to have people over as well, so it all works out. 

Tonight's Menu:  Dinner for 8

Lemon-Herb Grilled Chicken (from the cookbook seegrim sent me for Christmas - Keeping Good Company)
New Potatoes in Sour Cream (same cookbook)
Green Beans - (Shut up, now, these are MY green beans.  There's never ANY left!)
Homemade Rolls (Ancient Carrie Leigh secret recipe)
Salad - my friend is bringing
Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
Peanut butter oatmeal cookies - Friend is bringing

Now how does that sound, y'all?

Side note:  I don't ever actually say, "y'all" - it just sneaks out when I do these cooking posts.  Like I'm somehow possessed by Paula Dean. I dunno.  Weird.)

Currently, the rolls are rising, the chicken is marinating, the ice cream is freezing, and I am off to get my children haircuts so the little one will quit complaining that it's "touching my ears!"  Horror of horrors.

Y'all have a good weekend, now, y'hear?
