(Weekend Recap #30) – Dinner party, Family Time, and Garage Cleaning

Hi. 🙂 Ready for a quick weekend Recap?

Friday: “Dinner party” sounds weirdly formal, but we did have 3 friends come over to eat and drink, so I’m not sure what else you call that, lol.


I rushed home from work on Friday and managed to bake a garlic-dill challah and caramelized onion and apple quiche, with turkey and blue cheese. Definitely best quiche I’ve made thus far in life. I used this recipe for inspo, subbing ham with turkey and pear with apple, because that’s what I had. turned out so, so yummy!!! First time successfully caramelizing onions (who knew you added sugar and wine? lolz… things you learn on the rare occasion you read a recipe).

Side Note: When you have friends who appreciate good food and drink, it’s a beautiful thing. They brought cheese and olives and salami (and beer and flowers). So nice. Bomb dinner. Even bonfired after 🙂


This pic is from a different bonfire we had earlier this summer. I like having a portable fire situation, we dragged it out into the lawn instead of the side yard which was nice.

Saturday: Spent a lovely day out at hubby’s parents’. Collectively picked 4 lbs of raspberries & 2 lbs of bluebs (win), went on a 6 mile bike ride, submerged in the river, ate amazing cioppino, etc. Have I mentioned how much I love it out there?

Sunday: I pretty much spent the entire day working on organizing the garage, listening to podcasts and music while doing so. I’m so happy I did… Pretty sure it’s the most organized and clean it’s ever been! Even after my garage makeover I didn’t have it in me to tackle the storage shelves. But, alas! Today was the day! #proud


Hubby lost 21-19 in our ping pong match, so he had to set the coffee machine. Marriage tip: Make fun bets based off games often. The ping pong table was my 2-Year Anniversary gift to him, and it was such a priceless purchase!

Have a beautiful week, people.
🙂 ❤

    1. So. Many. Berries!! The hubs ended up blending all of them and adding it to one of his saison beers he is currently brewing… sad to be berry-less but know it will be super tasty summer sipping in a few weeks!!
