Fun (at-home) double date idea
Saturday night my big sister, Layne, had a fun idea for a double date. Her and Marco (her husband) came over to our house with 6 beers and we created our own beer tasting between the 4 of us. Marco is moving to Maryland Monday (gonna miss him a lot). Layne is finishing up P.A. school, so she will be in Houston until August. It was our last hurrah with all 4 of us until Christmas:/
We started with the light beers and moved to the dark ones. I skipped the coffee porter because GROSS. I tasted a sip of Andrews. Eww.
My favs were the Pumpkick and the Full Sail Amber! I thought this was SUCH a great double date idea. I hope to do it again with friends soon. Maybe an all pumpkin beer tasting would be appropriate for the season!
Layne and Marco brought the beers, so Andrew and I did the cooking. I planned a lot of appetizer-type dishes for us.
We made Damn Delicious’ Parmesan Tortellini Bites with marinara. SO GOOD.
Also made sausage + cheesy polenta rounds inspired by these mini polenta grilled cheese bites from The Kitchn.
And I made a big salad with spinach, blanched broccoli + cauliflower, dried cherries, sunflower seeds and a combo of multiple dressings that were in my fridge lol.
Our little sister had gone on a date that day, so we sent a funny photo to her of all of us asking how the date went:)
After dinner, we made Annie’s sugar cookies. We rolled some in cinnamon-sugar and some in cocoa powder-sugar.
Such a good night.
What was the high of your weekend??!
