So today we’re (both Nancy and I and our main characters) throwing a dinner party and inviting a few fictional guests.
Jack: Well, I’ll definitely be bringing a bottle of wine from the Paloma Vineyard, you know I’m their celebrity spokesman and a decadent dessert from a fabulous bakery I know in San Diego…Sweet Dreams. My guest is harder, when Willow’s around I like just being with her. I’d bring Terry Bradshaw, we could talk football and Hollywood.
Kathy: I’m bringing homemade manicotti from my family’s recipe and as my guest I think I’ll be bringing along Robert Downey Jr and not just because he’s a hottie! I think he’d be so fascinating to have a conversation with.
Nancy: This dinner party is a great idea. It will be fun. I’ll bring along Hugh Jackman, too. How’s that for something delicious? I don’t know that I’ll need anything else to feast on. Just kidding! I’ll bring a Caesar salad to complement your scrumptious manicotti.
Pepper: It’s so nice to meet everyone! I’d love to have dinner in my family home but since that’s not in the cards I’m so grateful to be dining with you all. I’ve also invited my style icon Audrey Hepburn. I really don’t know my way around the kitchen, even though I’m part of the Celebrations, Inc. catering company. My forte is more front of the house. But my good friends A.J. Sherwood-Antonelli-Harrison and Caroline Coopersmith-Montgomery are fabulous cooks and the heart and soul of Celebrations, Inc. A.J. has whipped up a delicious beef wellington and Caroline has sent along one of her famous for her red velvet cake.
Robert: I’ve always wanted to have a conversation with Mark Twain. He’s the perfect balance of brains and humor. I’ve always admired men with quick wit. Actually, women, too. In fact, that’s one of the things that attracted me to Pepper. As for the dish I’ll bring lobster with drawn butter and champagne and dark chocolate-dipped strawberries for dessert. Those are three of Pepper’s favorite things.
