After my biking episode…we got home and I was busy in the kitchen. Natalie seemed intrigued by the vegan garlic scape pesto, so I made her a quick batch before leaving for their house! It literally takes about 7min from start to finish. I think this batch came out even a little better, but I’m not sure why…
mmmmm I’m in love
Also brought a watermelon that was delicious! I had at least 7 triangles :)
Pat + Nat got me an awesome Prana computer/purse/tote that I LOVE. It just so happens to match the yoga bag Chris got me for xmas perfectly!
Ann is sick of smiling for the camera, hehe.
Hangin’ out. Such a fun + relaxing way to spend the 4th!
Anyone here play washers? I had never seen this before Pat/Nat made a set. I like it, but I think I like cornhole better!
Ann made fabulous salads, per usual!
I made Emily’s vegan black bean burgers, which were a huge hit! Everyone loved them, even the meat eaters. One friend said this was the most delicious + healthiest cookout he’s ever been to…yay :)
My plate! I loaded up the toppings on the bean burger. Soooo good!! Oh, and those bean burgers also take about 7min to make, minus cook time. Love it! I had a hunk of a vegan seitan “hot dog” that Nat/Pat bought. They were pretty good…nice + spicy!
The neighbors set off 100’sssss of dollars in fireworks…we watched!
Who runs from a watermelon??
Everyone does, when the neighbors blow it up with a 1/4 stick of dynamite. It flew SO far….I think I would have rather eaten it ;)
Love these ladies!!!
Such a fun day thanks to Pat + Nat for hosting! Off to Melissa + Matt’s now for a birthday dinner :) The celebrating just keeps on going. I’ll probably have a few cute pics of Jake for you too…so get ready ;)
