My friends and I like to get together during the week (especially Mondays) to watch some of our favorite shows, drink wine, and consume large quantities of food. This has become somewhat of a tradition. Who says you can only have fun on the weekends? It’s a great way to relax, re-charge, and break up the monotony of the week. We all take turns hosting, and everyone brings something, so it’s not too overwhelming for the person having everyone over. Last night, it was my turn. Natalie, Kate, and Ashley came over to watch the Bachelor. Although I'm not too into this season, its a lot of fun to watch and make fun of the stupid things they all say and do.

The girls brought over wine, champagne, cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, and cheese and crackers. For the main course I made homemade pizza, using the same pizza dough recipe as I used last week since it was such a success. It was also something easy to make ahead of time and a cheap way to feed everyone.
I made a Hawaiian pizza and a pepperoni pizza. I added Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the pepperoni pizza dough.

For desert, we had mini cupcakes that my dad brought from NYC. They are called “Baked by Melissa” and they are SO GOOD! My favorite was the Boston cream pie cupcake (the one in the middle). But there are lots of different flavors like chocolate chip pancake, smores, cookies and cream, PB&J, cookie dough, mint chocolate chip and more!
After drinking all the wine, we popped some champagne. Although we weren't celebrating anything in particular, it was so much fun. It was the perfect way to spend a Monday!
