The Book of Me....Written by You... Prompt 13

This week’s prompt (prompt 13) is Special People / Iconic Figures

If you had to hold a dinner party and could invite a maximum of 12 special people who would you invite?

You can NOT include family in this – the special people could be famous or historical people....

What meals would you serve and why.

Perhaps include the recipe or a photo if you decided to actually cook the items!


I never get behind in my writing with this, but I don't know..... this one has me a little stumped... anyway this is what I came up with.

1.. Jay Osmond... when I was young I loved the Osmonds, Jay was my favourite... to have him come for dinner to my house..well that would just be exciting !! :)  He could sing for us..we could all join in..:)

2. Catherine Cookson.... she has been my favourite author.. Her stories were all set in England... it always made me feel like I was home again, when reading .. she would make some great conversations at the dinner table, I'm sure

3. Kenny G...  When I want to relax or de stress...I just pop in some Kenny G... I just think having him as part of our guests, would make for a relaxing time:)
4. Robin Williams.... Isn't he great !! Such a good actor, and FUNNY.... He would add some great humour to the table, but I also think he could add some great conversation
5. I'd have to say that Neil Armstrong would be a great addition to a dinner party.... I would love to hear his experiences of being on the moon, what it was like to see the earth from way up there
6.  Another author would have to be Agatha Christie... oh the questions I would ask. How she came up with the plots she did? .... and the endings...so good. She would be a great asset to any dinner table
7. And how about Sandra Bullock... she has to be one of  my favourite actress's
8. Meg Ryan is another favourite
9. Yiruma... I LOVE his music... he could play for us.. maybe him and Kenny G could do a number together :)
10. Mother Teresa... to keep us all humble, and to keep us focused on what life is truly about
11.  George Takai...for his wit and wisdom
12. JK Rowling.... her story of her life before being a writer is wonderful... she could encourage us to live our dreams too.
What would I serve...hmmm...maybe Prime Rib with mashed potatoes , yams, carrots and green beans...also a salad on the side.
For dessert..... maybe a trifle


  1. So that is what a trifle looks like! I have read about them but never seen one. I wrongly pictured it more like a deep dish pie, for some reason.

  2. I remember seeing that photo of you 'and' the Osmonds back then, I remember that yellow top you had as well. I remember going to see the Osmonds with the girls from Church... Haha, I was one of the girls even back then ;) (Dare I say that photo was about 40 years ago....and whilst my hair has turned almost white since then, you haven't changed a bit)
