Happy Happy Friday hunnies! It’s the food porn post you’ve all been waiting for! The 4th Annual Chef’s Bet Dinner is finally HEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRREEEE! If this is your first time visiting the blog, just a few reminders of why this is the.single.most.important dinner of the year! It’s where the winners of our Fantasy Football League get treated to a full-on, formal, sit-down/decked-out, multi-course, gastronomical feast for our viewing and eating pleasure. And where said wives (and soon-to-be wives, that's ME!) freeload on all the fun!
We stuff our faces with food and wine, drink ourselves into a frenzied stupor, pass out (always before dessert in my case), awaken for round 2, and repeat until the break of dawn!
Simply put: Where the losers cook and the winners EAT!
This year’s theme: Prohibition - The End of an Era.
When alcohol became legalized and debauchery became the norm.
Yup, just about sums up my party posse in a whole!
Love seeing our men in sexy suits, bow ties, and suspenders, with their gals dolled up in fringe, feathers, fur, the whole nine! House parties are ALL about the ambience and I gotta admit, NOTHING beats alfresco dining in SoCal this time of year.
Peep out the AH-MAZING delights whipped up by our reigning losing team (Yup, 4 years in a row!) hehe…Which clearly means they’ve got this thing DOWN by now! Lol It NEVER sucks to be with the seated party! #winning
