Late night post-party bloggin’!!

Hey fellow blog peeps!  Doin’ a lil late night posting from The Man’s mom’s netbook (shout out!) now that  we are all partied out for the night 😉  Let’s just say that today was full of wonderful food & wonderful people — just a fantastic day all around!!

We started off the day with some awesome apps……deeeelish (still all wrapped up so the buggies couldn’t get to our food stash til we dug in)!!

Veggies & dip, crackers & cheese, tortilla chips w/ the BEST corn/bean salsa ever (chefs, you know who you are ;) )

So check it- this brie might as well be famous since one of the most well-known pastry chef from a great bakery in Richmond gave our chef (shout out!) endless compliments after tasting it at an event…. how exciting is that?!?!  She rocks, that’s right!
 
The Man and I managed to squeeze in a quick pic amongst all this eating

Oh, and don’t forget the brownies that I made earlier too!  Ghirardelli double chocolate brownie mix topped with the dark chocolate spread I picked up on a whim at World Market yesterday — whoop whoop (!!) to these brownies though because they win best boxed brownies EVER!!
 
Double chocolate brownies topped w/ dark chocolate.  I think so.

After all this eating & fun we all sat around an relaxed with some more drinks and now I am just chillin’ with The Man gettin ready for some serious bedtime sleepin!  Got some exercise and grocery shopping on the agenda tomorrow – and I am excited because I planned the week’s menu out earlier today so am ready to tackle that one!  I’ll see you crazy cats in the morning for a potential menu planning recap and some deelish eats of course, this lady is tiredddddd!  Night 🙂
