Menu Monday


What a fun weekend!

We celebrated a bridal shower for our friend Jill at a downtown Orlando eatery called Spice before hitting the town for her Bachelorette Party – Round 2.



There were lots of gifts, fun games and adorable desserts.  We feasted on a heavy appetizer spread of sushi, chicken quesadillas (with a kick), spinach artichoke dip with pita, and a variety of flatbreads - the steak and blue cheese was my favorite. 

There was also plenty of wine flowing during all of the wedding themed festivities.





I even won a gift basket!  Yippeee!




Only 33 days until the big day – and we couldn’t be more excited!  St. Augustine better watch out, we’re going to own that city!




After the shower, we had to pick up a few things and then headed to “Bachelorette Headquarters”, the Dawkins residence, to get ready for the nighttime shenanigans.




Our homemade spread was made up of the following delicious dishes:

  • Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
  • Fruit Kebabs with Dip
  • Pesto Feta Chicken Pinwheels
  • Tomato, Cucumber, Feta Bites
  • Chicken Salad Croissants
  • Taco Dip and Chips
  • Red and White Sangria
  • Champagne Punch






Everybody was asked to wear black dresses for our night out on the town while the bride wore a sassy red dress.




Fun girls out for a fun night!
