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.
Lot's of laughter and conversation :) Andy, Josh, Kelly, and Craig
Chris, Meg, and Allie...probably talking about how much we love the Alliebars!
Mexi-Cali salad with bell peppers, mango, tomatoes and shrimp - so good!
The quesadillas in the making, love that Sarah cut them with kitchen sheers.
Handing over the goods...
Original and Tropical flavors , it was impossible to choose a favorite.
Perfect evening, check out Sarah's post for more details!
