Second Street Fun

Neighborhood dinners..... we have them regularly on Second Street. Last weekend we had another. You can't
beat great food and great friends. All of our kiddo's were
well cared for at one brave neighbor's house down the street. We all shared babysitting costs. And no matter
how much wine you drink you will still arrive home safely.

One of the best things about our neighborhood is that all of us have the same small houses, so we understand
what an amazing feat it is to get 14 people packed around a kitchen table.

The bathrooms are all in the same place too-
first doorway on the right. Same scenario up and down the street.

We played some Wii and looked at each other's wedding albums.

I am always looking for an excuse to pull out the French linens my aunt gave me.

We all shared the cooking so clean-up was a breeze.
One of our neighbors made the most amazing potato dill soup and I have been thinking about it all week. My Google search was fruitless, but if they are willing to share the recipe I may pass it on to all of you!
There are some homes for sale in our neighborhood at the moment. If you decided you wanted to be a part of our dinners you have a few options to choose from. And you are guaranteed that most of us will still be your neighbors for years to come.

Since the housing market crashed all of our little "starter homes" are looking more and more like they will be the place we all spend the next decade or two.

It's a buyers market guys....... This could be your chance to be able to eat at the next Second Street Dinner.

Hi Naphtali - Thanks for hosting the party. It was soooo much fun and a welcome relief from a long MN winter. But it makes me long for summer when we can walk home in flip-flops and not Uggs.


PS I've been craving the potato dill soup also.
