Come Dine With Furniture Choice {blogger competition}

Currently there is a blogger competition where you can win a new dining room set up to the value of £500 as well as £100 supermarket vouchers.

The competition couldn't be simpler, just devise a dinner party menu and publish it on your blog.

All entry details can be found on the Furniture Choice website.

For me, a dinner party is all about socialising with your guests. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen for hours whilst your guests are having a good time enjoying cocktails. With this in mind I like to have a menu that can mostly be prepared in advance. I've decided to go down the Mexican route and have included one of my favourite main course dishes, Mexican Beef Mole. It's something that takes a while to prepare and I have only made once before but it was delicious, and our guests loved it. It uses smoky dried Ancho chillies and dark chocolate to make a rich sauce.

Everything on the menu can be prepared in advance, the nachos can be prepared in a serving dish and popped into the oven for a few minutes before serving. The Molé can be prepared a day or two in advance and reheated in the slow cooker, and be ready as and when you need it. If you have a rice cooker it makes cooking the rice so simple as you don't need to keep your eye on a simmering pan. I've decided to add my Chocolate and Lime cheesecake as the dessert as the tangy lime is nice to end a spicy meal.
