After missing the first Bunco night of the season in September, it was really fun to be able to go this past Friday night. It was so wonderful to catch up with my neighbors, after a busy summer for everyone. We were joined this time by our host's three sisters, visiting from out of town, so it was nice to meet some new people, as well as see how much fun it is to play Bunco, through some fresh eyes.
The way our group works, is that everyone brings an appetizer or dessert and the hostess supplies the drinks for the night. It is very easy to host with things set up like this and the food is always delicious. One of my favorites of the night were lettuce wraps you could assemble on your own with crunchy veggies and a chicken and soba noodle filling. Our hostess also made a platter of mini apple turnovers that were a great October dessert and the perfect little dessert bite.
As for wins and loses - you can see how my night started and that is exactly how I finished. We have a cash prize for the biggest loser and I not only tied for that distinction, I also lost the prize in a roll off. But, it's not about winning or losing; it's about neighbors and old friends keeping in touch and it's the silly dice game that gives us a reason.
