How are we feeling after this weekend’s celebrations friends? Did y’all enjoy the last day of 2012?? Yeeeeeehooooooo. I did! Maybe a little too much;) Monday was a super fun day! I got a lot done, stoked on my new toy (vitamix), managed to get in my last workout of the year, Zumba, of course, and made some bomb ass scalloped potatoes for the New Years festivities. Sooo excited!
I wanted to share the fun with all of you babes! It was a blast! Full of great champagne, wine, friends, delicious food, and pretty little sweets.
Here’s the bestie Amy. Her and her boyfriend Matt hosted a great party, always do.
These lovely ladies…..gorge…
We literally stood in this position for like 15 minutes as Lance (a the photo genius) was playing with all the settings on my camera, trying out different shots. Lol. In the end, we decided it was the lighting above us that we didn’t like.
Btw…I have cute friends;)
Amy’s homemade creamed cheesy spinach. LABOMBA.
This is when the drunkies came out.. Lol. Shouldn’t be allowed to hold a big ass knife in those conditions.
The potatoes au gratin were a hit. I ended up doing a healthier version. You know how heavy that dish can be. Originally made with lots of cream, cheese, butter, etc. I made it with ghee (clean butter), little bit of flour, nonfat Greek yogurt , skim cheeses, and unsweetened flax milk. I was actually pleasantly surprised to see how nicely it thickened up while on the stovetop. Also lots of garlic and thyme. That always makes thing taste delicious!
Ok, so annoyed. Apparently sometime during the evening, I got a big ol’ smudge on my lense. Effing pissed, cuz now you can’t really see my plate in all it’s glory!
Anyway, I forgot to mention, the CRAB LEGS. No bigz.
Dinner was amazing. I really enjoyed it all. Everything paired beautifully.
Another friend had made some delicious sweet treats
Angel food cupcakes and cookies shaped like champagne bottles. Adorbs.
I think things got a little blurry from this moment on. Literally.
CHEERS FROM ALL OF US FRIENDS , TO ALL OF YOU OUT THERE! HAPPY 2013!
