So much fun with lots of friends!!!!!!!! The theme of the night was "orange" and "beer." Also, good soups were had, delicious appetizers, lots of drinks, lots of chatter.
We threw open the French doors…
…Stocked up on seltzers and wine, plus a few bottled beers
…Sung to the kegs
And beer came out!
…Crockpotted Karen’s Chili and a Curried Butternut Squash. Both are now gone!
A big ole salad with apple, pear and sunflower seeds
With homemade dressing
Plus a bunch of snacky foods (including Matt Cracks!)
Veggies + Bright Basil Bean Dip galore!
Cleaned the kitchen!
I ate a thousand veggies in bean dip and chips and crackers, plus a cup of soup, some beer, some wine. I am SO FULL at the moment!!
TWO of these fabulous cookies! The recipe is a true winner.
We were given a few really fun gifts – UVA flowers from Steph and some Pistachio Rosewater Cookies from Cara that are like peanut brittle (and a few other fun edibles!).
[Cara, I LOVE the texture and the rose smells faintly like hops!] Had to break in for dessert #2
What was once labeled as an empty space for dirty dishes is now covered. Excuse us!
