I like to eat out at restaurants--sometimes a little too much so that item is on my budget watch list. One thing I thinking about trying is a hosting a progressive dinner party with friends. Has anyone participated in that type of party? - workwayless

My wife and I used to belong to an "International Dinners Group." It was a special interest group in the UT Women's Faculty Club which my wife belongs to. Each month we'd go to a different person's house and have dinner. Each guest would bring a dish, normally assigned to them by the hostess whose house we were eating at that month. The different months had themes like Spanish, Greek, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, German, French, Australian, Russian, etc. It was fun, but my wife was so busy with work and other priorities that we aren't doing it this year. I suppose that people could set something similiar up friends or co-workers. We only met once a month on a Friday or Saturday night. One couple would bring appetizers, another a vegetable, another a starch/casserole, or some such, meat, dessert, etc. It really worked well. The internet has a plethora of recipes on it about just about any cuisine a person could imagine. You could make it as fancy or casual as you wanted also. - Art
