Beth was in Denver for a few days this week, so of course we had to party...and by party, I mean cook at my apartment and wander around Target.
As an appetizer, I roasted brussel sprouts and we mixed up a little aioli for dipping. (I used this recipe) I probably should've bought twice as many sprouts, because we inhaled them - SO good! We may or may not have eaten every possible crumb & licked the bowl clean.
For the main course, we used this recipe for "Lightened-Up Sundried Tomato Basil Pesto Pasta." Except when I went to get the sundried tomatoes out of my cupboard, I realized they were actually roasted red peppers. Beth prevented my meltdown & the end result was really good!
Beth also was able to join my coworker, Ben, and I for lunch on Thursday. There are 2 Garbonzo restaurants on Colorado Blvd., and they both happen to be next to Panera, so we had a little bit of a mis-communication in the form of texts that said, "We're here!" and "No, I'm here." But, we all ended up at the same place and had the best little lunch!
