Spending £750 on a big night in.September 18, 2013
It got me thinking about what makes a great night in for me and it automatically came down to friends. We have lots of fantastic friends that we don’t see very often and so I would love to get them all together for the evening. We love having dinner parties but with 8 very close friends plus us we would need a really big dining table and four extra chairs. We would also like to keep the kids busy so a tv dvd player for Elizabeth’s room will keep them out of our hair.
We love cooking from scratch and with ten of us it is always a good idea to cook a banquet type meal. Two of our friends are vegan so we can make a few fantastic vegan curries and even make our own vegan roti. With a variety of curries and accompaniments and a good selection of wines to go with it I know we can have a fantastic time.
Poppadoms and chutneys
Chicken tikka masala
We don’t really do desserts as we all end up eating far too much food but we would definitely need a selection of Red, White and Rose wine. The chilled gallo summer red we reviewed goes really well with a curry and is very popular with my friends. With ten of us drinking we would need to save some of the budget for peoples taxi’s to get home again but I am sure we can just about stretch it that far.
