While we were still in Hawaii, we texted our BFFs the following:
Friday: Chichis & Pupus
We're bringing some of the islands home!
Tonight we gathered for a much-needed reunion of the clan with a pupu spread to knock your socks off:
Some people might just think of throwing together chips and salsa. Oh no. We done did this thing up ri-ight. Steamed artichokes, grilled vegetable paninis, brie & mango quesadillas, fresh veggies, coconut-cashew chicken and fish sticks, almond shrimp with papaya butter, fruit, and grilled mahi mahi with coconut curry vegetables. Double to the yum.
Ben shook up some mai tais. I threw together some gut-friendly chichis and pomegranate-lime vodka tonics. (I'll post recipes if folks are interested).
And then we played.
Chess nerds unite!
KK was the pet kitty in her cage.
Free at last!
Sidewalk chalk + girly love = precious
aaand...they were still at it when i finally pulled my biggest kid away to head home.
Nothing like a night with friends to start your weekend out on the right note.
