Tune in for episode 11 of Burnt Toast! (Want to catch up? Listen to our past episodes here.) 


Today we’re answering your questions about dinner parties. We talk tips and tricks, and then we’ll get to the good stuff: What to do if the food doesn’t come out, how to gracefully ask lingering guests to leave for the night, and why doing the dishes passive aggressively is never a good move. 

More: How to plan for a dinner party in advance.
