What better way to spend a warm evening like the kinds we’ve been having this week than in the backyard with a few of your closest girlfriends? Girl-only parties are some of my absolute favourites! I love having some of my closest girlfriends, sisters, cousins around me, sharing laughter, stories and of course, good drinks and good food. Sangria is usually the drink of choice during a warm summer night. It’s refreshing, light and bubbly, reflecting what the atmosphere of those kinds of parties are usually like.

These warm evenings are so precious at this time of year that I throw a spontaneous party whenever they come around, even if it’s in the middle of the week. There’s no need to rush and try to make an amazing four-course dinner on a Tuesday night, all you need are some light snack-type foods. I will usually have a cheese platter out, as well as a big veggie platter. Dips are a must and among my favourites are guacamole, hummus and kopanesti (a red pepper and feta cheese dip). Of course, I always have a bowl or 2 of Sea Salt or Multigrain In Snax Pita Crisps to scoop up the dips or use as a base for the cheeses. The multigrain ones are particularly good with a good creamy brie topped with a couple of dried cranberries.

So, what do you serve when your girlfriends come around?
