We didn’t let the state of our house – “moving box decor” stop us. It felt nice in the midst of packing up the house to take some time out for one last get-together with neighbors who over the course of 22 years have become dear friends.

All I needed to do was get a few serving dishes and pots out which have not been packed up yet to heat up a few frozen starters, side dishes and entrees in no time. No cooking from scratch needed.

  1. I have never heard of WokWednesday! However, I have one of the P.F. Chang dinners in my freezer right now, so I think I’ll serve that for supper tonight. Who needs an excuse to celebrate, right?

  2. Love this and I would have a neighborhood get together. Our neighborhood isn’t that big and we love a good excuse to get together.

  3. That is such a GREAT IDEA! Maybe I’d have a “mama party”… which is where are the ladies from playgroup or tennis or school or maybe everyone! get together for a kid-free, wine and giggles filled night.
