Hi, friends! Happy Sunday!
Last night, I went to my cousin Heidi’s house for dinner and drinks. She and her husband, Matt, just bought a house, so they invited Mal and me, her sister, Meeghan, and her boyfriend, and my sister and her husband over to see their new place.
The evening started with a wonderful spread of appetizers.
Roasted garlic —> mashed into a paste + olive oil = amazing!!!
There was also all sorts of drinks—beer, wine, and hard cider. (I got friendly with Kim Crawford.)
And a couple of dogs!
Kisses for Meeghan!
Baby bump! My sister finds out the sex of the baby next Thursday!
For dinner, we had salad with roasted chickpeas and homemade Caesar dressing.
And baked spaghetti squash with homemade turkey meatballs.
The sauce was made with fresh tomatoes and basil from Heidi and Matt’s garden. Mmm! So good!
Don’t you love the way Heidi and Matt served the spaghetti squash!?
For dessert, I made No Bake Caramel Cheesecake Bars from PaleOMG. A couple of my friends from CrossFit raved about these bars, so I just had to give them a try myself. They were so easy to make—just blend the various ingredients, layer in a dish, and freeze. OMG, delicious!
They were a huge hit with everyone last night.
Question of the Day
Do you have a big family or a small family?
My mom has 7 brothers and sisters, so family get-togethers are always fun and a little bit crazy!
