Andy and Forrest

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Andy is my sister in-law and Forrest is her husband. We are lucky enough that they live in Sandy, so we get to hang out with them all the time! We usually go out to dinner and pretty much always have dessert. We had been home from our honeymoon for a few weeks but I had to work every weekend night, so we weren't able to see them. Andy had the outside of the box idea of having dinner together on Sunday! So last Sunday they came to our new place, the first guests we had! They brought a delicious lasagna which truly hit the spot. The only designated place to eat is the bar, so we have to be creative. (Sneak peak at my awesome coffee table DI find before and after pictures of the apartment coming soon!) We had so much fun, four hours flew by and we realized it was almost bedtime. It was so fun to spend our Sabbath with family!

These awesome plates were a gift from Trav and Kassia, and check out my super sweet utensils from Pottery Barn that Stace and Brandon got us!

I took this last shot of their shoes, I had to catch their inadvertent coordination. And no, I am not wearing a Lakers shirt. Please disregard any feeling of animosity.

I'm getting hungry..

I wanted to post a couple fun pictures of the food we've been enjoying. I love having our very own kitchen and we can buy our very own food, and make something whenever we want! I am nothing near a Patti or a Caitlin in my food knowledge or expertise, I have just been making fun and easy things that my husband enjoys. Seriously Philly tells me "good job, babe" when I make toast for him. Very encouraging.
In the pictures above we made some awesome sirloin cheese burgers with pepper jack cheese. We didn't have any buns so we opted to use some onion bagels we had. I was wondering why I hadn't ever tried this-and wondering how it would be. We loved it. Holy cow, great combo.
In the pictures below we made some english muffin pizzas. You could make your own sauce but I took the easyeasy route and bought some garlic red sauce and mozzarella and pepperonis. We baked them and then broiled them for a few minutes to get the muffins toasty and delicious. They turned out so yummy. I definitely did not make enough for Philly, he was still hungry.


I just wanted to share a few honeymoon pictures I love for those who have no facebook access :) We had such an awesome time. We went to Scandia bakery too many time to admit (pictured below) We went to the beach and read, played frisbee and dug holes with tunnels. We went shopping in Newport and went to the movies a few times. We may have stumbled into the Candy Baron, a childhood memory/fantasy of mine and we were able to indulge. Best honeymoon/vacation ever.
