Going to dinner as a guest tonight
My husband asked our host and his latest girlfriend that insisted on this dinner what we could bring. I figured they would say wine.
We were asked to bring a dessert. this is my pet peeve. I have dinner parties constantly. I never ask anyone to bring something. Then when I go to dinner at their house I feel like that earns me the honor of being a guest for the night. Picking up a bottle of wine is one thing. Dealing with dessert is another.
So I didn't have time to cook today. This bugs me b/c I don't like to buy desserts. I ended up going to the best baker in town and picking up a cake. $40 later I hope it's going to be good.
My question is do I still take wine?
I know I sound like a terrible guest. I am trying to be gracious.
Does anyone see where I am coming from? Am I the only one that tries to be a hostess that lets her guests be guests at a dinner party?
