UPDATE: I'm slipping this in here...I just put my dining room pictures from yesterday on HGTV's Rate my Space. Click here to see and rate.
I've mentioned on my blog a couple times that I belong to a supper club and every time I mention it I get lots comments and emails wanting to know more about it so I'll explain how I found my group, how you can find or start one in your area and how it all works...A few years ago I saw a TV segment about supper clubs. At the end of the segment they said you could go to the Cooking Light website to find supper clubs in your area. It sounded like so much fun that I went to the website right away and found a new group forming in my area so I joined in. That group lasted about a year and then we stopped getting together because everyone's schedules were too busy and we could never find time to get together. It was fun while it lasted and I really missed it so about a year later I went back to the Cooking Light website and found an existing club that was looking for 2 new members. This club has been around since 2004 and I joined it a little over a year ago.
Some groups are couples, or a mixture of men and women or singles. The group I belong to consists of 6 women. We get together every-other month and we take turns hosting it at our home. The host picks the theme and we stick to healthy cooking, using recipes from Cooking Light, Eating Well, etc. We occasionally go on field trips to eat out or go to special events.
When we get together everyone brings a dish. Most of the cooking is done at our own homes but occasionally you'll have to finish up something or reheat something at the host's home. We all bring take home containers to divide the leftovers up.
If you are interested in finding more about supper clubs you can visit the Cooking Light Supper Club Hub by clicking here, or you can go directly to the Supper Club message boards to either find or start one in your area by clicking here. Once there just, click on your region to begin.
Our Supper Club started a blog shortly after I joined and you can see what we had for brunch along with some of our other meals (click here). Each person updates it with their recipes. It's been a great way to keep track of our get togethers.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll answer them in the comments section.
