There used to be nothing better than a night in with friends. Uncensored gossip, a couple of glasses of wine and belly laughs, all make for a good night. Fast forward a few years and with long hours at work, high rent or mortgage and kids in the mix sometimes a night out is off the cards. Grown up slumber parties have made a comeback.
With the rise of rents and the search for a place sometimes meaning our friends have moved further away, the only way forward is to gather up the troops and take turns hosting a fun night in. Potluck, pamper sessions or just wine and Netflix can all make for great catch up sessions without the hassle taxis and expensive dinners. We are still loving a night in with our pals.
An easy and inexpensive way to host a night in. Everyone makes a dish and brings it along so the burden is not solely on the host. That way everyone also has something they fancy to eat and after all, variety is the spice of life. Nothing like a big pot of Thai Curry to warm the cockles... easy to make and share.
