Hi lovelies! I hope that you all are having an amazing week so far. I want to start off by saying a special shout-out to everyone who clicked over from the How Loft Fans Wear Stripes feature… welcome to GGG!
Sorry that I’ve been a little MIA lately, I caught the stomach flu that has been going around the bay area! It’s become a full on epidemic here and they even had to shut down a high school! Thankfully my strain hasn’t been as bad as some of those reported, but it’s been lasting quite a while. In fact, the only things I’ve been able to eat lately are dry cereal and crackers. I can’t remember the last time I was nutrient deficient and I’m craving a huge salad with protein and lots of vegetables! Hopefully my stomach will cooperate soon and I can eat like normal again.
Now since I teased you on Friday, I think it’s time you see the finished product:
These were so simple to make and a huge hit at the party! The girls really went all out for Book Club and my brownies were in good company alongside Nutella cookies, red velvet cookies and whiskey brownies. And that was only dessert! Everyone else made incredible appetizer courses too:
At the beginning of the night... many more dishes were squeezed on this table!
My favorite was my friend Ashley’s heart of palm salad. Hearts of palm have actually been one of my favorite foods since I first had them in a salad at a restaurant in LA. Since then I’ve been hooked and have even been known to eat them out of the jar… is that weird? My other favorite item was the Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese. It’s no secret on the blog that I’m all about cheese and Cowgirl is some of the best! San Franciscans will know what I’m talking about and I’ll be sharing it (or the knowledge of it… sorry I guess you’ll have to come hang out in SF and we can eat it together!) in a few weeks because I’m actually doing a Cowgirl Creamery tour and tasting.
Oh and sorry I don’t have more pictures to document the night! I realized when I took out my camera that after I posted pictures Thursday evening, I forgot to put my memory card back in! So since I can’t show you what I was wearing, I thought I’d share a picture of my new favorite purchase that was topping my outfit:
The perfect new cape!
My new, fully-lined, wool cape cost a whopping… $17.48!! Target, I love you.
