|Chocolate Guinness Cake: Manly and more-ish|
Tonight some of hubby's friends are coming to our place for pizza and beer, while on Friday it's my turn to have the girls over. As so frequently happens, we're doing more socialising within a fortnight than we've done for the past four months - everything seems to come together, particularly since both of our birthdays fall within the same month (right after the family double whammy of Halloween and Guy Fawkes' night). While we both absolutely love entertaining, there's no denying that it comes at a cost and in the run-up to YOU KNOW WHAT, we do need to be careful with our pennies. For this reason, I was delighted to come across this 31 Days of Simple Hospitality series on one of my favourite blogs, The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking.
For those who love spending time with friends and family but are held back by cost concerns or other hosting insecurities this blog is definitely worth a read.
Time to start planning that next get together?
