What a great meal last night, courtesy of my younger sister. She and her roommates made a meal for 9, plus leftovers for a million! I think it was the first time she held a dinner party and she did a fantastic job. I'm so proud of her. I think my parents were too. My mom said she was glad she passed down her cooking gene. I am too!
I brought her and her boyfriend a nice dessert wine, which I wrapped in some tissue paper and ribbon, both "gently used," as I'm big into reusing. I refuse to buy wrapping paper and wine bottle bags; there are so many other options! I took a leaf and made it into a gift tag. So easy and making use of nature too!
And now, some photos of the evening!

And now I'm off for a hike in the redwoods! Burn off those biscuits, baby!
