Dinner Party

Monday night Nathan & I had over two of our best friends, Ian & Jessica. They're siblings, and Nathan lived with them for a year in college. They're some of the nicest people, and I love spending time with them. Jessica is a social worker with a lot of similar interests as me, so we always have lots to talk about. And Ian, well Ian is like a brother to me, and I adore him. He's also a cat-whisperer, and our kitties love their uncle Ian.

For dinner, we had a delicious meal of flaky brie appetizer, baked pasta, home-baked garlic bread, veggie-stuffed salad, and chocolate torte for dessert. Mmmmm. A few dinner photos:
Pasta with vodka sauce, veggies, soy chorizo (Stephanie gave me that idea! And it's so good!), and some mozzarella & Parmesan on top. Oh, it was tasty.
Bread!!! And then I cut it up, put some olive oil, garlic, & herbs on it, and toasted it in the oven.
Such a tasty meal. I ate too much, obviously.
And the Brie. Ohhhh, the Brie.
I do wish I had taken photos of people rather than just the food. Oh, actually, it appears that Jessica took a really pretty photo of herself on my iPad. So cute!

And then there's Fiero. Just waiting for us to give him some food:

All in all, we had a really fun time together. We ate a lot, talked a lot, and played Dutch Blitz, which involved us berating Ian, me yelling rudely, and Jessica beating us mercilessly.

Basically, we have awesome friends. :-)
