137.0....Fried Goodness!

Last night's Couple's Mixer in our neighborhood was a blast! Everyone brings a hearty appetizer and a bottle of wine to share. It's always exciting to see what dishes everyone brings!

When we last left off, I was getting ready to go to the mixer. The avocado egg rolls were all rolled up and waiting in the fridge. Time to fry!

In the hot tub you go!

Here they are after they were all fried up to delicious goldeness:

I just realized that I didn't take a picture of the finished product! Well, check out the last time I made them. It looked just like this and you can find the recipe there too!

Our friends, Erika and Robert, were hosting the mixer this time. As soon as I arrived, I poured myself a glass of Chardonnay:

I had two glasses of Chardonnay and one glass of Cab over the evening. Erika did such a beautiful job of setting everything up and the weather was beautiful!

Hubby and I:

Check out the spread!

The first plate of two:

I tried one of everything! The food was so delicious! I'm so sad that I didn't take a picture of the dessert. There were cookies, cheesecake, lemon bars, brownies....but I decided to have one thing: a huge slice of Red Velvet Bundt cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. It was a glorious piece of cake, trust me. :)

Some of the girls (me, Lisa, Erika and Dina):

A great time was had by all...thank you Erika and Robert!!!

When I woke up this morning, all I wanted (besides coffee) was eggs and cheese. I decided on a egg beater burrito. I had a coupon for a free package of Kraft's 100 calorie cheese packs so I decided to throw one of the packages in with my eggs. I'm glad I had a coupon because those babies are expensive. It was like $4 something for 5 little packages of cheese. No thanks...I'll cut my own.

It did the trick....perfect! Then it was time to hop in the shower and get ready for my family to come over. I decided to grill the hot dogs inside since that was all I was going to put on the barbecue..I didn't want to turn the barbecue on just for that. I reheated the chili I made yesterday:

Ready to eat!

My plate:

I had one hot dog with chili, mustard, cheese and onions as well as my favorite cole slaw. Delicious lunch!!!! I was tempted to go for a second chili dog but I restrained myself.

Then it happened.....my daughter came running outside with my new iphone(!!) and.....

dropped it. Yes. It shattered. OMG.

Off to the Apple store I went where I had to have it completely replaced! AHHHHHH!!

I got home, still mad/frustrated/upset/angry/irritated/etc, and my hubby wanted to take everyone to the horse races. I politely declined, expressing my need to update my new iphone with EVERYTHING....contacts, pictures, everything. Ugh.

Now I'm finished and feeling better (could it be the wine I'm drinking? Sorry no picture). Everyone is on their way home and I need to get dinner going (homemade pizza!). Good night all!

Have you ever broken something really expensive before?


  1. Wow, all that food looks amazing! What a great idea, looks like you had a great time! :) As for your iphone :(, my daughters have dropped my phone many times but it never shattered, that's awful! Although hubby decided to update my phone last year and accidently wiped everything off my phone, contacts, pics, documents...it was horrible but I eventually got over it! ;) Thank you so much for your comment on my blog about couch to 5k, looking forward to starting it, where it takes me who knows! lol

  2. oh man - I hate breaking things - especially pricy things. Yes, i've broken lots of cell phones, cameras and sunglasses. It hurts my heart.

    Those rolls look awesome! As does the chili dog. And you and the ladies look fabulous!

  3. Food and wine...looks like my kind of a party! I love the dress you wore...gorgeous!
