#916 Pup Party.
by Erin Napier
Tonight we had a dinner party and invited our friends with dogs to come and leave them in the backyard with the birthday dogs, Chevy and Sugar.
I made shrimp and grits, the most difficult dish I’ve ever done (I swear the recipe made it sound so easy!) but it turned out all right I think. Everyone brought side dishes and I now know that summertime is not the right time to turn on the oven and invite everyone over. It was 100 degrees in the kitchen, but a cool 70 in the rest of the house… But you know where everyone likes to congregate. So we did. And it was hot, y’all.
