145.0…Last Minute Dinner Party
I was pretty productive yesterday afternoon. I cleaned out some more bathroom drawers and completed a project I’ve been meaning to finish for awhile. My Half Marathon Shadow Box!
I hung it in my laundry room. Now I can feel pride every time I’m doing the laundry. :)
Before getting ready for Bunco, I had a piece of zucchini bread. Gosh this stuff is good.
My daughter feels differently. She said she doesn’t like it. When I pointed out that she never actually tried it, her response was “I see things in it.” Yep.
Bunco last night was at my friend Michelle’s house. I was greeted by tons of delicious appetizers when I came in.
Michelle makes an unbelievable bruschetta. I ate a ton of that as well as these “Caprese sticks.” At least that’s what I call them….a cherry tomato, a little mozzarella ball and a piece of basil on a toothpick all drizzled with balsamic glaze. Oh my! So simple yet so good! I will have to make these for a party for sure. I must have eaten 8 of them. Easily.
Michelle also made a fabulous cocktail.
It had Prosecco and Limoncello in it and it rocked my face off.
Dinner was an assortment of different summer salads. I should have taken a picture of them but I was starving (yes even after the gigantic amount of tomatoes I ate) so I just dug in. My plate:
So refreshing and light!
Do you know what else Michelle made??? Homemade cream puffs!
Holy crap. They were amazing.
I had one (restraint!) as well as a delicious chocolate whoopie pie. I practically floated home with a happy belly. :)
This morning I wasn’t feeling too hungry (I wonder why?) so I just had a bowl of Trader Joe’s Strawberry Yogurt O’s cereal with raspberries and almond milk.
I took the kids to the bus for camp and went to Zumba. Class was a little slow today. Our normal instructor has been on vacation for the past couple of weeks and I’m really starting to miss her extreme cardio. :)
So……last night before I left for Bunco, my husband let me know that we were having a bunch of business associates of his over for a barbeque the next night. Ah…thanks for the heads up dude.
So…..I quickly came up with a meal plan, raced to the grocery store and came home to get my cook on. I knew time was limited so I grabbed something quick for lunch.
Spicy Tuna/Avocado roll and a Spicy Salmon/Avocado roll all on brown rice. Yes I ate both packages.
The rest of the day I’ve spent prepping all the food. I actually finished the prep work a lot faster than expected…I guess I’m getting good at this!
My fridge is full and ready for a party!
Pollo Asado tacos with all the fixings
Mexican Corn & Bean Salad
Guacamole, salsa and chips
My Famous Spicy Cheese Dip
Wanna come over? :)
If you had a few hours to throw together a dinner party, what would you make?
