Double Date Dinner Party

What a great night spent with friends!  Adam and I don't get to spend too much time with our friends.  We're transplants from New Jersey, and while I did go to school in the area many of my friends have since moved back to their hometowns. It makes us appreciate the time that we have with them even more!

Tonight we had a double date dinner party with another couple - a friend of mine who was my roommate in college along with her boyfriend.  You're probably wondering what was on the menu...we had "build your own burritos"!

Having a "build your own" meal is a great idea when you have guests over because you can make a variety of things and everyone can choose what they want to include.  We had black beans with lime, sauteed onions, salsa, Follow Your Heart "mozzarella cheese" and guacamole on Ezekiel wraps.  On the side I made a mixture of sauteed baby greens with a little salt.  Everything was great and the company was even better!

Of course I was so excited about all that food that I forgot to take a picture...but I did snap a picture of the cupcakes that I made!


The recipe that I used was from the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. If you don't already have this book, buy it now!! It is available on Amazon and there are so many great cupcake recipes - I made the key lime last week and they were so incredible too!

Now that I'm in a food coma I guess I should get some sleep - three more days before a nice long 3 day weekend!

Goodnight!
