Honestly, Mondays are one of my favorite days. There are lots of reasons I typically enjoy Mondays, but one of the best is Monday Night Dinner (MND). MND is a long-standing tradition at ChezMK where Miranda and I host 10-15 of our closest friends for an evening of dinner and fun. I think we've been doing it for something like four years, just about every Monday night with very few exceptions.
I love traditions like this because it's one of the reasons our group of friends feels more like a family. We watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and see how many questions we can get right. We try a bunch of different kinds of food but have a few favorites that we keep coming back to. The evening activities vary...trivia night, a TV show, Monday Night Football, games, just chatting and hanging out.
We've seen wonderful friends join the MND crew, and sadly, we've seen some move away. I think we've even had up to 18 people on a Monday night. And if you've ever seen ChezMK, it is certainly should not be able to fit that many people, but we make a way, and we make it fun.
I love all the memories ChezMK holds, but the ones made at MND are some of my favorites.
Love. my. friends.
