Belated Post For A Belated Birthday Party
A week after Marisa's birthday, we all finally had time in our schedules to meet up for her birthday dinner and dessert. It was great to hang out with everyone since it has been a while. Our normal tradition includes finger foods, veggies, cheeses, bread and crackers, a TON of wine and a late night full of gossip and laughter.
This time around, however, we had a toned-down 'healthier' version. The main course was an awesome soup prepared by Beth that consisted of chicken, salsa verde, white beans and chicken broth. It was accompanied by a salad. For dessert, we had homemade sherbet.....well....sort of sherbet. It was definitely homemade though. haha! Our alcohol consumption was limited to one glass of champagne. (Note to self - find out what kind of champagne we had so that I can enjoy the entire bottle.)
The funny part about dessert is that it looked like cat food.
I think it was because the 'sherbet' had not softened up enough and it just chipped away as Beth tried to scoop it out. It was pretty tasty though!
Here's Nicole and Katrina poking a little fun at the dessert concoction.
As expected, it was a good time in good company.
Happy Birthday Marisa!!
