Weekend in pictures

Today's breakfast brought to you by the bird... in celebration of birthday week. He's the best.

On Friday night we hosted a couple friends over for a cheese, wine and game night. Here's our spread.
I love fun nights in! Oh... and cheese!

-Cheese board: Variety of cheeses, dark chocolate chunks, honey and grapes
-Dips plate: Parmesan topped pesto and garlic hummus with toasted ciabatta and pita breads
-Vehicles: Mixed cracker plate, including this homemade recipe: Rosemary + Sea Salt crackers. SO good and such an easy recipe to make.

Saturday was a mellow day, which included downloading The Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie on Apple tv. Sunday we took the train to these outlets and scored a couple goodies for our upcoming trip to Italy!

How was your weekend?

Ok you eat some good looking food girl! Between the cheese platter and what I think is some very awesome pancakes, you are making me very hungry.
