Good Morning Darlings!

As I mentioned last week, my mac decided it had too many photos on it and refused to upload even one more. This was a tragedy because I lost all the photos I took at Erin & Chris’ new, beautiful home.

But I still want to tell you all about it, I will just have to substitute some pictures. Bear with me. The bonus is the recipe, sweeties!

You remember my adorable friends Chris and Erin, right? They are so funny and lovable, being with them is like a big hug. They just moved into their new house as newlyweds and it is awesome! A great kitchen, an amazing dining and living room and way, way, up the stairs, is a man cave for Chris, with all his media. I look forward to a dance party up there soon.

Lets get cooking with Chris inside!

I’ll Have A Side of Laughter With That, Please

Good Morning, Darlings!

Last night Eric and I were the happy guests at the home of our friends, Erin and Chris. Joining us were our darlings, Matt and Clint, who had introduced us all. Erin and Clint work together at Cartoon Network and are slap hilarious.  Matt, Chris and my sweet Eric are no slouches in the make ’em laugh department either, so when all of us get together I leave with sides aching from all the laughter.

Erin and Chris are fresh from their honeymoon in Nevis, which is in the West Indies.  For our dinner, they recreated a dish they had while in paradise, crab encrusted tilapia. Essentially, a crab cake topping a filet. How could anyone say no to that?

Here’s our sweet host, Chris, donning his chef’s jacket (sidenote: Way to go, Chris’s dad, on the swell gift!) Take a look at him and tell me you don’t see happy host written all over his face. Chris and Erin are like a great big hug and I love spending time with them.

Can You Smell What The Chris Is Cooking? It Smells Great!
