144.4...Goat Cheese with Fig Butter

Last night we went to Joe and Alicia’s for our neighborhood’s “Couples Mixer”. It happens about three to four times a year and we rotate who hosts. Everyone brings an appetizer and a bottle of wine. The food is always fabulous. I can’t take credit for the appetizer I brought. My sister in law Marit makes it for her parties and it’s out of this world. Besides tasting insanely good, it’s ridiculously easy to make.

Thank you Joe and Alicia for hosting!

We actually stopped by a friend’s birthday party briefly after leaving the Mixer. Late night!

I was up before dawn this morning to see my husband and son off to the airport. My son is off to sleep away camp for a couple of weeks! 

When you get up that early, you sure can get a lot done before even having breakfast!

I took my daughter to the mall to get some stuff for her camp. She wanted Red Robin for lunch. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and some fries. I couldn’t say no to the fries.

We ran some errands, stopped for Starbucks and came home. Girls day out!

What’s the best thing you ate all weekend?
