145.4…My Big Fat Greek Dinner

Last night we hosted our "Gourmet Club" for dinner. I had decided on making Greek food, so Alicia brought her homemade spanakopitas for an appetizer. You could taste the love in them. :)

We sat outside enjoying them and some delicious wine before dinner was ready. Eventually we moved inside when it was time to eat. 

On the menu:

Easy Tzatziki

Delicious. The perfect creme brûlée! 

Such a fun evening with everyone! I love when we get together…it's guaranteed good fun & eats! I forgot to mention what happened early in the day:

Yep. A snake at our front door. Definitely a first for us. Yuck.

This morning we hit the road for the Los Angeles area to pick up my daughter from sleep away camp. I brought some coffee and a Special K breakfast sandwich in the car with me to eat for breakfast.

After we picked her up, we went to Souplantation with some family for lunch. It was brunch time so they had a few different things than they normally do. I had my standard salad and chili but I tried the breakfast foccacia which was good but would have been better if it was warm.

Cinnamon roll. Good thing I got a small piece. Dangerous.

 My husband and my daughter headed back to San Diego and I'm still in Los Angeles because I'll be picking up my son tomorrow morning. The family will finally be back together! 

Do you get wild critters in your yard?
