Tonight's Supper Club Plans

Tonight I am hosting Supper Club! We rotate hosts each month, and this will be my first time hosting in December (in the ten years we've been gathering). I'm really stoked to have ended up with December, because this is when we do our Dirty Santa gift swap. We love this. It's the highlight of our year!

Typically, we all bring a $20 gift. This year, to keep the unwrapping and swapping going on for a little more time, I asked the ladies to bring two gifts -- a $5 gift and a $15 gift. That way, we have double the opportunities for stealing! We'll run the two swaps individually and I'm thinking about doing one before dinner and one between dinner and dessert.

I'm always the one that bites off more than they can chew with dinner plans, and I end up stuck in the kitchen while everyone else is sipping wine, eating appetizers and chatting. So this year I vowed to keep it really simple.

Appetizers: Cheese selection, two kinds of olives, crackers

Dinner: Crockpot Cheese Tortellini Soup (recipe here) and homemade garlic bread

Crockpot Cheese Tortellini and Sausage.  1 (19 oz.) bag frozen cheese tortellini   1 lb. sausage (I prefer Italian)   1 bag fresh spinach   2 cans Italian style diced tomatoes   2 cans low-fat chicken broth   1 (8 oz.) cream cheese

Dessert: Millionaire Pie (recipe here)

Millionaire Pie! Only 5 Minutes to prep, no baking required and tastes AMAZING!  LOVE LOVE LOVE this pie

I'm so excited to see these girls that I love so dearly. And I have two wrapped gifts under the tree that I hope will be a hit in our swap (I'm especially excited about the $5 gift!). I'm proud of us for getting together every month for ten years ... that's not always the easiest. There's nothing like good girl time.
