Girls Night In!


We've ditched the fellas this week! Not that there is anything wrong with men, after all - we need someone to do car maintenance, yard work, and bug killing... among other things...
Much as we love the furrier sex, it is nice to have a night with just the gals.

But really, who can afford to go out these days? Much better to entertain at home. The food and drinks are better and less expensive. Also, nobody looks at you funny if you laugh too loud or wur your slurds. Just sayin'.

So invite over a favourite gal-pal or two, look up some groovy Mark Bittman recipes, and have yourself a great Girls Night In!

Guys, don't worry, I haven't forgotten you. Whether you are making something for your favourite gal or dropping off some cookies for mom, "just because", this is a great opportunity to spoil the women in your life by helping facilitate their fun night in. These nights on our own only make us love you more, we promise.

Make and post your Girls Night In recipe by Sunday, July 18th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky , below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.
