We had a blast tonight (our biggest party to date!!!) but I’ve got to get to bed. Here are the highlights.
My parents brought presents!
And a TUSKER (!!!!!!!!!!!) and Peeps!!
Easter decor, handpainted by my grandmother
Party decor. I spent about an hour rushing around the yard setting this up.
From our wedding!
Antique silverware holder
Diana’s fabulous Edamame Hummus (Ellie Krieger’s recipe made with silken tofu – I don’t have the recipe but you might be able to find it online – it was awesome!!!)
I had about 4 of these
And a few of these b/c we ran out of pita!
And a few sips of this –
Burger set-up: GH buns, condiments,
Blue Cheese Slaw (with pear this time = awesome!). Kelsey’s recipe!
Karen’s potato salad
Kate’s famous salad! (with goat cheese – mmmm!)
The beautiful napkins Matt got me as a surprise this week after a visit to Crate + Barrel for a frame
Grilling. We had two kinds of beef – lean (93/7) and regular (80/20).
Delicious – best burger of 2009! With avocado, tomato, 1 tiny slice cheese, pickle, mustard, ketchup. Matt made me a special 3.5 oz burger because I don’t need much to be satisfied.
w/ 7-Up and a splash more wine –
And for dessert we had brownies, made by Buzz, and Hello Dollies, made by Karen!
I had a small one of each –
Tonight was perfect. Great weather, friends, food. I also just ate – healthfully – and enjoyed everything so much. I don’t feel full – just perfectly satisfied without much other thought. ‘Twas a great day all around.
Tomorrow I plan on doing yoga in the AM (so I don’t have to get up super early) and then maybe walking with my mom after class. She is coming to Winthrop with me to see Food Lab in action!
Gnight y’all –
