Dinner is Served!

On this thankful Thursday, I am grateful for conquering fears. “Host a Dinner Party at my Home” was on my 54 Before 54, https://lifewithlisa.blog/2019/02/11/54-before-54/and I actually regretted putting it down because just the thought of it freaked me out. I was filled with self doubt and fear.

You may be wondering, “What’s the big deal?” For an introvert like me, it IS a big deal. Will they enjoy my cooking? What if my China and glassware aren’t good enough? What if….. And the list goes on

Of course I knew my friends wouldn’t judge me. And of course I knew that even if it all went wrong, we would reflect back on it with a good laugh. That’s what friends do. But that’s also what fear does – it drowns the unconditional love out.

When my original plans fell through, I saw it as a way out. But…. I knew I needed to push through. Otherwise, I’d regret missing out on this wonderful opportunity to host and share some of my favorite meals with friends.

Joyfully springing into action, I pulled it off at the last minute. This was all ON me. All my husband had to do was be there for support (and maybe a couple of last minute grocery runs 🤗) I love ya Steven 😍

I pulled out our wedding china and mismatched soup bowls, set the table.

On the menu:

  • charcuterie board (why is that word impossible to say!?! – stop laughing Shelby 🤭
  • Smoky Vegan Black Bean Soup
  • Cornbread muffins
  • Chicken
  • Split Pea Pesto Stuffed Shells (my favorite 😋)
  • Plant-Based Pasta Salad
  • Apple Pie Parfait
  • Peppermint Fudge Brownies

It all went off without a hitch. Delicious food – everyone cleaned their plates! Great conversation while learning new things about one another.

It was a very special evening that I will forever be grateful for. I’m blessed that our friends were excited to be a part of something important to me.

What fear would you like to push through?

Imagine with all your mind ~ Believe with all your heart ~ Achieve with all your might
