And I might have had a few “tastes” of the Berry Pie I made before my work day began. Just a few.
We had a bunch of friends over that night for a little grill party with meats from The Meat House. I made a few sides of fresh salsa, some of Jaime’s guacamole, and fresh corn salad. Finished with a “goodbye to summer” of Eva’s Berry Pie.
The evening progressed to several rounds of Rock Band. I managed to take a bunch of out of focus pictures. I’m sure the glass or two of wine consumed had nothing to do with it. I did manage to capture this VERY serious one of Ben.
Saturday was a pretty slow and lazy day for me. Not a great night’s sleep and I skipped out on my five-mile run and went for a measly two. Oh well, something is better than nothing, right?
Saturday night I had some quality time with Amanda, Joe, Isaac, Leah and Eli! Lots of snuggly baby time with Eli.
Meanwhile Amanda prepared a delightful meal, starting with her coveted Artichoke dip which I will share the recipe at the end. I of course neglected to take a picture until after I had eaten almost all of it!
Before we partook in the delicious meal, we had a champagne toast to a home cooked meal in the new Giacometti home.
