We had a really fun weekend with Erin!
Friday we went to a Mother Bunch brewery, where I couldn’t resist trying a few beers myself! I don’t normally drink beer anymore but every once in a while I can’t help myself. We also tried a ridiculously good bacon popcorn appetizer (again I don’t normally eat corn, but sometimes I deviate).
Saturday we had brunch out and then went to a movie to escape the heat. Ken and I enjoyed a brunch cocktail – I had a basil lemon drop and Ken had the house mimosa. Later on we had Uncle Rick and Aunt Mary over for dinner and pool time. Erin and I made some ravioli stuffed with goat cheese and roasted red peppers, inspired from a bruschetta we tried at lunch the day before. Uncle Rick made some of the best grilled shrimp I’ve ever tried, and Aunt Mary made a delicious salad. It was a perfect summer time meal.
Our fun didn’t stop there. Sunday morning Ken, Erin, Aunt Mary and I went to a “grill your veggies” cooking class. We made beet risotto, cauliflower steaks, grilled zucchini salad, and grilled apricot salad with goat cheese. Later in the day we got mani/pedis and went wedding dress shopping with Amy and finished our day with sushi.
