Hill & Dale Supper Club

Chris and I have a group of friends which meets about every six weeks or so. This usually involves a hike or perhaps a play or movie, maybe a book we've all read and want to discuss but always good food.  Last week the date for our Hill & Dale Supper Club dinner fell on the first night of Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. This is the link to the Wikipedia page explaining the holiday. Since Shobhana was our hostess this time around it was a perfect excuse to help her celebrate her most important holiday and sample all her wonderful Indian dishes. 

We all contribute to the meal whenever we get together so there's no shortage of good things to eat as you can see. But we left the specialty dishes to Shobhana. Oh ,the deliciousness!

There's always plenty of help in the kitchen whether it's needed or not.

I wish this blog had smell-o-vision - I mean it!

We turned on every light in the house, inside and out and I do mean every light including the closets. We strung extras just to be sure to welcome good fortune for the coming year.

May your coming year contain nothing but light and good fortune as well!

Until next time,


  1. What fun!!!! Years ago, we were part of a dinner club. Each month, someone would host the meal. It was always a theme. One couple did Christmas in July!! We did a Country Hoe Down, complete with bales of hay, and bandana napkins, steak and the like. One year we did a New Orleans Mardi Gras night, and served crawfish and famous New Orleans food. It was so fun. Thanks for the memories. Your evening looked and sounded delicious!

    1. That sounds like so much fun Kris. We are much looser about what we serve but we do have fun as well as you can probably tell.

  2. A special post for sure! It's great that you and your friends get together and a regular basis and super special to take part in a friend's holiday.

    1. I feel so blessed to positive people to spend time with and share good food and happy activity. All these things make life so much more interesting and just plain fun.


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing what you have to say.
