Oh what a night! My fabulous friend Mia is always the hostess with the most-est! The other night she & her guy had Tyler and me over for a home cooked meal. I knew that the evening would end Happily Ever After when I saw these delicious pies by Simplethings on the console next to a bottle of Veuve Cliquot (pie review here).
But first, I took down a bowl of these addictive, Trader Joe’s Salted Dark Chocolate Almonds, perhaps one of my favorite items at TJ’s. Once I start, I can’t stop eating them! Naturally, this was before dinner was served (roasted chicken, succulent salmon, and amazing sides, btw).
Then Mia whipped out some homemade ice cream that she made with the best Vanilla Bean Paste and a touch of heaven.
I had the “genius” idea to make a Dessert Wine Float by adding ice cream to my flute of sweet wine.
And by “genius,” I mean I was was very ill the next day….(eeeg)
But ultimately it was a great night and well worth it!
And Mia got the Golden Cherry for her fabulous cooking!
