Dinner at my Sister's House

On Saturday evening my sister and Riley had Christopher and I over for dinner.  They made a delicious spread, and we had a great time catching up and seeing our youngest nephew.

When we arrived we snacked on an artichoke dip, that I totally need to get the recipe for; it was garlicky, cheesy, and really hit the spot.

Next they served a beer cheese soup - mmm!

The main course was jerk chicken, coconut rice, and a mango salad.  I loooooved the mango salad, and made sure to leave with the recipe for that (it's just mango, fresh lime juice, red onion, and cilantro).  It paired so well with the spicy chicken.

Dessert was a strawberry, cheese-cakey, pretzel, type dish that we all really enjoyed.

We goofed around in the living room for a while, laughing at what my sister and I would look like as men, hahaha!  That Snapchat filter is so creepy! 

Tonight we're having leftovers from the mother's day dinner we made yesterday (more on that later), and watching Master Chef CanadaChristopher's friend from high school is on it, and is doing so well!  There are only about 5 or 6 people left, and we're rooting for Josh each week.

How was your weekend?  What did you do?
Did you celebrate mother's day?

Yum! That dinner looks delicious! So fun to spend time with your sister and her family! We had a really nice Mother's Day. Phil offered to get up with Paul but I was already wide awake when he woke up at 6:20. I had breakfast with him and then we went for a quick walk in our neighborhood. The weather was beautiful! He loves walks - he kicks his little feet, jabbers, and waves to people. It's so cute. Phil's mom came down for lunch, which we mostly grilled, then we went to the park and out for ice cream. It was a great day!
