The weekend! Where to begin?
It had been too long since Miriam and I shared Spanish-inspired cocktails, so we decided to visit Boqueria on Friday.
Sangria for all!Miriam and I have both lived in Spain before and were pretty excited to get some pan con tomate, a Spanish staple. I think Boqueria did a pretty good job and would definitely go there again.We even remembered to photograph our rare, non-sweaty experience.And then were promptly photo-bombed by these random men who decided to pose with us. ???Anyways, flash forward 10 hours and I was catching the sunrise on a cool Saturday morning:
I did 4.5 miles solo, then met up with the DC Road Runners for another lovely 14.I haven’t done a “long” long run in a couple weeks, so was a bit nervous. But plenty of Gatorade and good conversation made the miles fly by, actually!By the end I was tired but happy. And got even more tired and more happy when Anthony suggested we host a pizza party.Yes, that is his apron. Best wedding registry gift ever!
We had two of our friends come over for dinner. Started off with classic Italian salad, complete with heavenly pepperoncinis. Anthony whipped up some amazing pies, all of which included plenty of CHEESE. I decided I am always going to capitalize CHEESE and types of CHEESE from now on.Table set…and GO!Generous pours of wine and a decadent dessert tied it all together. I am proud to announce that I actually made whipped cream from scratch. It’s pretty easy… you just buy some cream, and whip it. Who knew.Going out to eat is fun, but I think hosting friends in your own home can be just as delicious and much more intimate!
By the end of the evening we were both pretty tired, full, and happy. Which is the best way to end a Saturday night in my opinion. Hope you’re stuffing your weekend full of fun, too!
- Do you go out to eat a lot, or party more at your own home?
- Have you ever made your own whipped cream?
- Did you do a long run this weekend? How did it go?!
