When Ryan and I were dating throughout college, I enjoyed many nights with these two as they cheered on their favorite basketball team, the Chicago Bulls.
A couple of weeks ago, Daniel broke his ankle in a soccer game and had to have surgery on it last week. Ryan, Sadie and I paid him and his girlfriend Courtney a visit this evening to watch the Bulls game and enjoy a yummy dinner.
Sadie even dressed up for the occassion.
Apparently Sadie is quite the good luck charm because the Bulls won by quite a bit!
When we arrived, Courtney had a delicious spread of appetizers waiting for us.
I had quite a bit of everything. Why are appetizers so good!?
I really liked how Courtney prepared the sliced cucumbers. She marinated the slices in a mixture of olive oil and red wine vinegar. They were delicious!
After about an hour, we were ready for dinner.
Ryan and I brought over our BBQ meatloaf and everyone enjoyed several slices.
We also had chiabatta rolls fresh from the oven.
I love bread. 🙂
Dessert was a combination of my spice cake mix cookies from this afternoon and a banana chocolate chip cake that Courtney baked.
I had a couple of slices of Courtney’s cake, which she made with yellow cake mix, three ripe bananas and chocolate chips.
It was fantastic!
Dessert is my favorite part of any meal.
Bye Bye Weekend
Is it just me, or did this weekend fly by?
I sure could use another day! I need to have a serious conversation with the guy that decided weekends should only be two days.
See ya in the mornin’ to kick off another work week!
