I read that quote on Southern Living Magazine’s instagram & I don’t think it could be more true. Going into hosting an event can be stressful and time consuming, but having the confidence just to do it shows a lot about you. And even if your meal is a total disaster staying calm and confident in yourself is truly telling of a hostess. As you prepare for your holiday events..remember that quote. It can still a great party even if it’s not perfect.
I also wanted to share a recipe with you that I’m dying to make.. Oysters Casino. I’m not quite sure why, but I am so drawn to oysters lately! I wanted to put them on our Christmas menu, but Danny reminded me that over half the people coming probably wouldn’t like or even try oysters.. what kind of hostess would I be if I served that?! So I’m thinking if we lay low for New Year’s Eve, I’ll make them for Danny and myself. And mom says oysters are considered in season during any month ending in -ER, so there’s no better time than now! (thanks, mom!) I know that just trying to whip something up without a recipe would lead to a huge let down for me, so I found this recipe on marthastewart.com.
I’m drooling just looking at them now.
