The Guests

In case you haven’t heard, Charlie at Doodlewash is hosting a dinner party this month!  It is a Doodlewash dinner party where you are invited to bring your paintbrush and draw your dinner or drink and share it on your blog.

Not too much has been shared about the guests who have started to arrive, so let’s go see who they are, shall we?!  (Oh, and I almost forgot, each one has brought a recipe to share with you!)

Josh arrives with a broken arm – Oh, no!!  He broke it while playing basketball with his son.  So Josh needed to bring this easy appetizer, Parmesan Cheese Spread.  “Be sure to use REAL Parmesan cheese and not the fake stuff on the shelf,” advises Josh, “It will make a huge difference.”

Rowdy Rob comes dancing in the door carrying his popular Party Veggie Salad.  Rob still wears his hair in a 70’s style and thinks he’s a hit with the ladies…

Next two people to arrive are Cindy Lou and her Aunt Betty Lou.  Cindy brings her zippy Meatloaf Strata.

And Aunt Betty who is a bit nutty but sweet, brings her Butterscotch Nut Bars.

Doris arrives unexpectedly with her cat, Fluffy who makes Charlie’s dog go crazy!  Luckily, Philippe comes to the rescue and puts Phineas in the bedroom and closes the door.  Doris who seems a little aloof to the whole situation presents her Upside Down Popover Pizza while Fluffy settles upside down on the couch…

Eccentric Midge saunters in carrying her famous Chocolate Julep Cheesecake.  One bite of her divine dessert and no one minds that she owns 10 cats.

Let’s hope Charlie has some wine open to get this dinner party started while MORE guests arrive…. (To be continued…)

All characters were created randomly with a brush of black acrylic ink and my imagination.

I hope I gave you a smile today and maybe a recipe or two to try?!

Happy Creating!  🙂

    • Happy you like them, Corinne! 🙂 I had fun using an old recipe for a background and that gave me the idea! Funny how one thing leads to another, you know! 🙂
