Ladies Lunch

Back in May we had another ladies lunch. Unfortunately Jenn was unable to make it, but Brooke, Lauren, Colleen and I all got together at Brooke's since she's on bed rest.

Colleen brought a delicious orzo salad:

... with arugula, goat cheese, dried cranberries, basil and pine nuts. I can't wait to make this salad for SP. He loves all things orzo. I made my grilled corn salad (thanks again to Brooke's husband Joe for showing me how to use their gas grill):

Since Brooke couldn't do any cooking she ordered sandwiches from a local Italian restuarant for us to share. I loved the eggplant sandwich:

... and also the chicken with roasted peppers:

Here's my plate with two sandwich quarters and the salads:

I'm not ashamed to admit I had two helpings of everything. It was all so incredibly delicious. I was so full I didn't eat dinner that night. Lauren was in charge of dessert and she made ice cream brownie cupcakes:

... that were sinfully delicious. As always, we missed Jenn tremendously. This might be our last ladies lunch for quite awhile. Lauren is due with baby #2 in July and then Brooke, Colleen and I will follow shortly thereafter. The next time we get together might be with a few extra little ones.
Pin It!
