Irish-Inspired Bunco Night

A little over a year ago, a group of ladies in my area started a bunco group. We're affectionately called bunco bitches. Since we all live pretty close to one another, it's convenient and no one really has to drive far. Each month a different member of the group hosts a themed-bunco at her house and prepares snacks, dinner, dessert and a signature drink.

Tonight was my night to host a St. Patrick's Day themed bunco (which my friend Tracy graciously agreed to let me have at her house). The menu was "brunch for dinner" featuring bacon and cheddar quiche, spinach and mushroom quiche, blueberry mini scones, vanilla yogurt with coconut granola and roasted potatoes. And for dessert, I baked mint chocolate chip cookies. It was a wet, cold, rainy night so my signature drink - Bailey's with decaf hazelnut coffee was a big hit!

The night was filled with laughter, friendship and fun. I always look forward to spending the evening with these ladies but tonight was especially nice as there was a great energy among the group. Plus, the luck of the Irish was definitely with me...I won $45!!!
