143.8…Taco Dip

Last night the girls got together at Annette's house to help Lisa celebrate her birthday. Everyone was to bring an appetizer. Mine turned out to be a keeper for sure!

This Taco Dip was amazing. It did separate a bit on the ride over to Annette's so I ended up stirring it all together. Still amazing.

After all those appetizers, it's a wonder how we ever made it to the dinner portion of the evening: Sublime Pizza!

We ordered three different kinds of pizza.

All three were INSANE. The one with the figs was so savory and unique! 

Time for birthday cake(s)!

Breakfast this morning was scrambled egg beaters with salsa, green onions and cheddar cheese on top of a toasted English muffin.

Today has been spent cleaning up the house and my desk a bit. Lunch was my daughter's favorite restaurant: Souplantation.

I somehow managed to avoid my favorite pizza bread. I think I had enough pizza last night to last me for awhile.

Do you have a go-to appetizer you like to bring to parties?
