Headed to Emily’s house for brunch today. Even though they are in the middle of a big move, they still hosted a wonderful brunch at their house today. So brave! Go Emily and Casey!
I brought some roasted chick peas.
The dogs went crazy for the chickpeas…must have been the cumin?
There were so many yummy eats there:
Kelly’s Cranberry orange scones.
Kate’s Banana bread.
Emily’s Fruit salad.
Emily’s Millet salad.
Whit’s Green salsa.
Per the usual…I had a little bit of everything.
But brunch wasn’t complete without dessert! Brittney’s blueberry pie!
Even Michelle (who admits to not liking blueberries) liked this pie! 🙂
Such a fun time with friends! Our Charlotte crew is the best!
After hanging out a bit with their fun-loving dogs…
…it was time to say goodbye to Emily and Casey. 🙁 Just for the day though. We still have a few plans with them before they move.
After brunch, I decided to relive an old favorite pastime of mine…browsing the bookstore.
It seems I’m so crazy-busy these days that I rarely have “free time” to do…well…not much of anything. So, today, I took a couple hours back, picked up a stack of magazines, got a coffee, and kicked back for a bit.
I had a nice, diverse stack of options – style, house, food. It was lovely! I need to make more time for fun stuff like this!
Hubby hung out with the boys tonight, so Bailey and I had a night in.
I got some tri-color green beans from the garden to add to dinner.
Soba noodles with tofu, farmers market zucchini + squash, organic peas, and sesame seeds.
I browsed a couple of my fave books (too bad I don’t have enough time to make anything in them at the moment!)…
…and watched Lifetime movies, including Bond of Silence, which was based on a true story. It was so sad, but I loved at the end how they showed video of the actual people the movie was based. They explained that the 2 featured now go around giving talks to help prevent what happened to them, which is so admirable.
And I picked up cupcakes for me and hubby – double chocolate. These cupcakes got best cupcake in town recently, so I had to see what the buzz was about. They were really good, but had way too much frosting for me. I like more cake than frosting.
Which do you like more – the cake or the frosting?
