I got a lot done this morning to prep for the festivities tomorrow! No workout today, but I guess my cleaning is exercise in itself. :)
After cleaning, I started to plan for the dinner party menu:
I haven’t had a chance to cook with this cookbook yet so I hope it is good. The recipes just look delicious!
The weather is supposed to be stormy tomorrow so I am learning toward more comfort foods for the menu.
Except for this one, that is. It is a nice cold drink, but I think it will be wonderful for us ladies tomorrow!
I found a wonderful Watermelon Granita recipe.
How awesome does that look!?
I am going to sub the sugar for agave (but I will probably only need 1/3 cup agave instead of 1 cup sugar!!).
Of course, I am going to spike it, probably with vodka. ;) Us ladies want to get our drink on tomorrow night!
I am making a Deep Dish Summer Vegetable Cobbler:
Harvest pot roast:
I will prep this tomorrow AM and slow cook it all day long.
I made up a big grocery list for Eric who has the day off work today thankfully!

Notice DOLLARSTORE placemats- haha! Love my $store.
Then I made my fabulous vegan banana chocolate chip mini muffins for Sunday’s Breakfast:
I just may have to eat this one. It’s looking at me!
I had some batter left over so on the spur of the moment, I decided to turn my batter into a banana chocolate chip pie. I added about 1/3 cup soy milk to thin it out….and voila! This will be dessert for tomorrow night. I also sprinkled it with coconut at the last second. I am debating making a banana vegan buttercream icing for the top. Mmmmmm,
Along with a special frozen banana treat…any guesses? You’ve probably seen this all over the blog world by now!
I am so excited to use our dining room with the table that Dave and Ewa gave to us!!!
Sketchie is the official chair warmer.
I also got out our Ikea chair cushions. LOL. We really roll out the red carpet for our guests, don’t we?
As a side note- Sketchie is obsessed with chewing the velcro on the chair cushions. Ick.
Ok, I need to get back to work!
See you tonight for a very special guest post, as well as more dinner party prep! Stay tuned all weekend for all of the fun!
