Game Night!

I’m back!

As you may remember, hosting a game night has been a goal of mine for awhile. Well, it finally happened on Saturday night. 🙂

Tommy and I invited three other couples over to our house to play Cards Against Humanity and Taboo, complete with a baked potato bar, wine, beer, water, and soda for dinner. In addition to humans, we also invited doggy friends (Pua and TJ) for Violet to play with.

Putting together a baked potato bar for any occasion is not hard at all. Here is what I chose to include for the bar, (but honestly the sky is the limit):

  • Baked potatoes. I followed these instructions on how long to bake the potatoes for, opting for the first method (oven baked and individually wrapped in foil). The potatoes came out perfect!
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Crab salad
  • Sharp cheddar cheese
  • Onions
  • Chives
  • Baby carrots
  • Steamed brocoli
  • Avocado
  • Bacon (not pictured)
  • Old Bay, butter, salt and pepper
  • I also had some Utz Crab chips leftover from our housewarming party so I added those to the menu as well.
  • Though not pictured, my friend Tammy brought an amazing Oreo Pudding pie for dessert – which was gobbled up in seconds.

After satisfying our hungry bellies we decided to start game night with Cards Against Humanity…

Followed by Taboo. While I enjoyed playing Cards Against Humanity, the obvious crowd-pleaser (at least to me) was Taboo. We played girls vs. boys and boy did things get competitive! The boys did end up beating the girls, but we’ll challenge for a rematch any day!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our first game night!
