Sun Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Dip is a great appetizer you can make ahead

It’s no surprise that hosting parties is second nature to me — and I’ve come to realize that I enjoy doing back to back parties. I’ll host a baby shower one day, and a birthday party the next. The house is clean, the tables and chairs are cleared, everything is out, WHY NOT?! I’m not trying to brag, this is what I do really well, and why I started Sweetpea! Want to know more about how Sweetpea Lifestyle got started, listen to this podcast episode!

Something that is helpful after each party — and that I’ve wanted to do for a while, but never have! — is making a scrapbook of sorts for parties. Include what kind of event it was, who was invited, what was served. Was there a dish that was a hit? What was leftover and how much? What took way too much time, and what would you make over and over. This could be really helpful when planning menus!
