Blogger P-A-R-TAY

After a long day of work, including a 4hour meeting that I was dreading, yoga class, and our CSA pick-up we were thrilled to be headed out to meet blogger friends for dinner. Sarah and Josh hosted a MeXi-CaLi madness feast last night! Along with our hosts the blogger group was: Meg, Chris, Lacey, Craig, Kelly, Allie, Andy and Me

Craig won best dressed :p

The food inspiration was "Mexican but with a fresh focus"!

There were: margaritas! (+ beer + wine), chips, guac, salsa, Gazpacho!!, Mexi-Cali salad, Quesadillas and………Alliebars!!!!!!

Homemade guac, cilantro hummus, and salasa - fun dippers!

Really great gazpacho I loved the fresh test of the tomatoes and that the cucumber wasn't over powering. I can't wait to make it this summer when the tomatoes are falling of the vine with ripeness.

Three quesadilla options - with sweet potatoes, pinto and black beans, and mushrooms.
