It was a week full of activities: dinner party, trip to the zoo, parks, library story time, a little bit of attempted shopping.
First, dinner party with friends. I won this Williams-Sonoma and Calphalon dinner party. I received some new cookware in the mail as well as a menu. I love this sort of thing, but man the preparation was a bit intense! Good thing I had all these extra helpers around:
Here's what the table looked like outside:
This is the little plot of grass outside our condo. Evan really tried to talk me out of eating outside, but I had a vision. Evan joked that someone with a shopping cart who is fishing for recyclables is going to come strolling right through our dinner (our recycle bins are very popular with the homeless crowd; they come by multiple times per day). Well, they did come, but he was walking, and when he saw us, he left.
Instead of what Williams-Sonoma recommended for dessert, we made homemade marshmallows for a smore spread.
