We didn't get to buy the awesome office chairs (BOO!) but it was more fun to have a photo shoot here than in the bathroom sink section.
My friend named Vanessa --name twin!--and I met when we were 14 at summer camp in Germany. Since then, we've visited each other in Hawaii, Georgia, and again in Germany. She was back in town for a few days and invited us to dinner with her family. To make it even better, it was a vegan dinner party! Here is the table loaded with dishes before we sat down to eat:
On the table, we've got: a "non-meat-loaf", samosas, carrot and sweet potato soup, ratatouille, couscous, corn on the cob, cucumber rolls, fresh cucumbers from their garden, chinese sauteed eggplant, and of course---some wine!
It was a really fantastic meal, and great company. Nice to meet up with old friends, and of course make new ones. Thanks for having us!!
|Hopefully we don't wait 7 years to see each other again!|
Today we got to enjoy the meal all over again, with some leftovers. I got sent home with a ton of the non-meatloaf, which was my favorite dish of the night. In it: oatmeal, barley, flax seeds, carrots, and zucchini. With a side of spicy tomato sauce making it extra juicy and moist. I'm definitely asking for the recipe to try to recreate this one.
We even got a big bag of goodies from the garden--so excited to use the fresh rosemary!
What's your favorite veggie/herb straight from the garden?
Fresh basil! I want to start growing some because I love to toss tons of fresh basil on pasta dishes, pizza, etc.
Do you have any long-distance friends?
Since I've moved around a lot, my friends are really spread across the globe. So it's great when I'm in the same place as one of them and get a chance to catch up!
