dinner at eight

Photobucket
inspired by a bit of sunshine, i participated in her july dinner at eight challenge. yes, it's september. who cares. it's worth it. the challenge? a picnic. so i did an indoor picnic. i'd expected husband to go to the gym right after work, so when he called and said he was just coming straight home, i had to hurry to get things done!

i used only our clear or white glass bowls and serving trays to make it simply pretty. nothing fancy. i picked finger foods up from the store after work, and added our favorite sweet and spicy meatballs.

he was pleasantly surprised. and he even brought me home flowers.
because, you know, friday's still date night.
even if we're both surprised.
and even if it's just at home.


oh. then we had dessert.
what's the most acceptable picnic dessert?
s'mores.
with the biggest marshmallows i've ever found.
here's how it went:

his one cheat for the week. it was worth it.
