She's Home!

My sister finally made it home tonight!  And we had a wonderful dinner in the works to celebrate her birthday and gather with friends.  My sister and I are five years apart, but if you saw us you would totally think she is older!  

Sisters!

On the menu:
My Undone Caprese Salad (this turned out way better then last time!)  I omitted the Balsamic Vinegar this time!
Bruchetta:
1 Tomato, Fresh Basil, 1 Small Onion, 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil, 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
Garlic Mashed Potatoes (Recipe to Come)
Mashed Cauliflower
Asparagus
Steak, and Fish

And for Dessert the Famous Strawberry Dumplings complete with homemade ice cream. I am going to leave you with a photo montage of the evening.  As it is very late and I am meeting Katie for an early AM run!  Think 6:15!

 The Pie Crust for Strawberry Dumplings
 Yum Strawberries
 You can tell we make Strawberry Dumplings A LOT!
Fresh From the Oven
The beginning of Bruchetta
Way better then the last undone Caprese Salad
Crispy Olive Oil Bread for Bruchetta! Easy to do cut a baguette brush each side with garlic and olive oil.  Bake in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes or until crispy and golden!
My little sister growing up!  She got a cook book and is actually cooking!
Goodnight Everyone, and remember to live Happily Ever Healthy!
