So I met up with a couple of moms to start a "cooking club." We each made something, brought it and exchanged recipes. I, of course, made my favorite cookies. That way, even if I didn't like anyone, at least I got to have a couple cookies :D
There was some yummy gaucamole, a tasty pasta dish (it had feta in it, need I say more...), and some cheesecake bars.
It was a nice small group, which might seem disappointing, but I think it worked well because everyone got to talk to each other and get to know each other a little bit.
Another plus to working part time for a little while; maybe after 4yrs of living here, I'll actually make some of my own local friends LOL
