Three years ago, a few 20-something girlfriends decided that making a set date for dinner once a month on Monday night would be a great way to guarantee time to catch up and hang out. The name “phoodie night” (the ph is very important) was coined, and Phoodie Mondays were born.
The first Monday of each month, the 8 girls get together at one house and each bring a dish, based around a particular theme, to eat and enjoy. Themes have ranged from Soups and Sandies to Fondue Night to Ballpark BBQ. In three years, not a single month has been skipped and, while one of the girls will miss from time to time due to a conflict, very rarely do any of us miss out on a dinner.
Girls have gotten married, babies have arrived, and life has changed quite a bit in the last three years, but the Phoodies are committed to keeping the Monday night dates going, and now we are finally accomplishing another goal: keeping track of all of our yummy recipes!
