The boys are coming...

Every few weeks or so Joj has his friends over for a little male bonding. I really enjoy playing hostess for a few reasons.
First, it makes me clean my house. Now I know this is on wife/mom to do list anyway, but company forces me to kick it up a notch (even though they are guys and won't notice) Secondly, they will eat anything. It used to be that most of the guys were single and a home cooked meal was a treat. Now most of the guys are married, but they are still so appreciative it makes me want to pull out all the stops. Last, but certainly not least, is the fact that the every now and then one of my favorite wives will tag along and I can get in some really good girl talk.
Now, the boys have their favorites and I'm sure I could just rotate through them, but I like to try new recipes every now and then. Over the holidays we went to our friends' house for some pasta carbonara and it was too die for. Ever since I have been seriously jonesing for some more. I found a recipe for penne carbonara and it looks good and more importantly, easy. I think I'm feeding about 15 folks tonight so that is a lot of pasta. I'm also going to make a salad and garlic bread. My friend Jess is bringing something for dessert, which is great because all her stuff is super yummy. It is going to be a fun night. I just need to clean, shop, prep and cook. Oh I'm also watching Lily today so I will have a helper. A very busy day for sure, but it is the good kind busy.
Happy Friday everyone!

That sounds so fun! How was the pasta? Was the recipe blog worthy?
