Recipe for an Incredible Night

Okay, I realise that I am late in posting this.  I got caught up in life stuff (the positive life stuff) which led to lots of drink and friends!  Even though I know this is late, I have to give you one piece of AWESOME NEWS before showing you the pics from Monday night.  Chris and I have a place to live!  Yes, that's right.  We put the down-payment down yesterday and we are officially moving in on the 28th May.  I'm really excited (in case you couldn't tell) and I'm looking forward to sharing the moving experience with you (even if it is literally just round the corner!)

So, onto pics.
Me dressed ready to cook:

And photos of me and friends:

I only just realised I don't have any pics of the spaghetti and lentil bolognase I made so I'll skip straight to dessert:
The cupcakes I made impromptu:

Chocolate animal shapes (it took 200g of Milka to make these 8 shapes):

Ice pops (lemonade and food colouring - messy combination):


A handy place to store it when chatting:


It was an incredible night and so worth the pain the next day; I can't wait to host another one (though it turns out I'm a bit Monica-ish when it comes to being hostess).  But basically, the recipe for a great night is: friends, food, drink and sugar.
