Winner, winner chicken dinner!!!
Or, rather, breakfast? Lunch? Brunch? Linner? (It was my first meal of the day, but it was also 4pm.)
Other party nibbles – veggies, grapes, chips n dips, olives
A big pasta salad with feta, tomatoes, and more olives (<—kinda appropriate because we were celebrating Oliver’s first birthday)
My first plate had a bit of all the hot food, plus crudite, hummus + pasta salad
I went back for more chicken, plus grapes, olives, veggies, chips, and ranch dip
For some reason, whenever I eat fried chicken I only want dark meat, and I want it all. Any other way it’s prepared (grilled, roasted, etc.) I’ll go for the breast, unskinned.
(Miss Peaches’ version was INCREDIBLE, by the way.)
So glad we didn’t bring Julius – dogs were stealing bones left and right!
There were also children everywhere – climbing trees + picking citrus
Sadly I can’t have grapefruit anymore because of cholesterol meds. But I did gather a few Meyer Lemons.
Couldn’t stay for birthday cake – we had Julius responsibilities before a movie date. There was literally another party going on outside the Arclight!
Didn’t watch something from the film festival – we saw “Win Win,” which was really great. I am becoming a big fan of writer/director Thomas McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent) who is also an actor, AND from Jersey, like me!!!
It was still warm out at 10pm when we left the theater. Abe and I were obviously not the only ones craving a frozen treat
A fruit base of mangoes, blackberries, pineapple, and blueberries (they’re in there, buried!)
Three flavors (technically five, since two were combos)
Toppings: rainbow sprinkles + candy fruit
These Haribo Raspberries are the perfect combo of texture + gumminess
A total winner of a Saturday!!!
