Hand your plate over

A few evenings ago, Erik and I went over to Jackie’s, where she made a delicious, enormous dinner for the three of us and Dave. I made myself as useful as I could, but still she deserves very nearly all the credit for this amazing spread!

We ate ourselves silly, watched the first half of the Project Runway finale, then finished off with some delicious cupcakes. I didn’t get a picture of those, but they were a reworked version of the yummy cake Jackie made for my engagement party last August. [photos originally linked, but now inserted below]
