Don’t stress about hosting book club! We’ve got the perfect Winter Book Club Menu all ready for you complete with easy cocktails, appetizers and dessert recipes.
Now that the holidays are past us, it’s time to settle back into our regular routines and social activities - which means Winter Book Club for Lisa and I.
Though our numbers have fluctuated through the years, our group of book-loving women is still going strong. We try to meet monthly and take turns hosting at our houses, but December is always reserved for a restaurant outing and gift exchange.
We’re back to our regular meeting schedule now that it’s January. Our book club menus usually follow the same pattern: cocktails or wine, heavy appetizers and dessert. Most everything can be made in advance and ready to go when friends start to arrive. Because who wants to be stuck in the kitchen when the girls come over?
Need some inspiration for your own book club menu? Look no further than right here. Our Winter Book Club Menu offers you a sneak peek into how we do book club. Enjoy!
