Friends, Happy Thursday!

Have you ever considered hosting a dinner on a Thursday? Today I’m sharing the perfect menu for a Thursday night dinner; better yet, a Cinco de Mayo party serving this Best Homemade Guacamole Recipe.

My friends over at SocialMoms did a little write up about my blog and me this week. (By the way, I’m at the table with my beautiful friends, LoriBridget, and Heidi took this pic, if you don’t already follow their blogs!)

I put my glasses on and took a closer peek at this fun memory, entertaining in our backyard, and my eyes immediately went to my bum finger. See it? Yes, I remember! I quickly replayed that night in my mind, like a slow-motion movie, how I set the table for 12, was doing last-minute food prep, when BAM! I sliced my finger with a very sharp knife. Not a little cut, but an almost-emergency-room-cut!

Luckily my friend, Minor (a retired doc), was over, and he bandaged up my silly finger, and I was quickly back to hustling around, like you do right before the guests arrived. I’m sure I was moving to quickly. Fast forward 5 years, I know I’ve slowed down :)

And, by the way, this party was on a Thursday.

If you haven’t thought about hosting a dinner on a Thursday, you should. Like next week, the Thursday before Cinco de Mayo?

Also, if you want to throw a last minute dinner, Thursdays are great. Most people can come. Most people look forward to a relaxing on a lovely Thursday evening! It’s casual and guests never stay too late (wink-wink).

Today I’ve put together a lovely Cinco de Mayo menu. Plan ahead,  invite your guests, and get your shopping done this weekend, just in time for a next-week Thursday night dinner! Of course you don’t have to make it all, pick and choose what sounds good!
