girls weekend extravaganza!

every once and a while a girls weekend is just what the doctor ordered and with the mr out of town it was the perfect time to have ms july and ms jenny to drive down from seattle saturday afternoon.

of course, some girls weekends involved boy bashing, drinking, clubs, dancing on bars to top 40 or wine, cheese and romantic tear jerk movies. our girls weekend revolved around FOOD.

it all started as soon as the girls arrived at the apartment. we put our heads together and wrote out a menu, made a list and then headed to whole paycheck.

crostini with sauteed mushrooms, butter cheese and truffle salt

grilled flank steak marinated in garlic and balsamic vinegar, grilled asparagus, baby arugula with avocado and fennel salad. we also enjoyed an AMAZING bottle of grenache that ms july brought to the party.

strawberry rhurbarb pie with vanilla ice cream (along with a few Lady Gaga music videos)

for breakfast: very cinnamon rolls with cream cheese glaze, big pot of seattle's own lighthouse coffee (thank you jenny) and prosecco with elderflower syrup

big thanks to ms july and ms jenny for driving down, i had so much fun! very much looking forward to that camping trip ladies!

till next time,
