Just A Little

Spring paid us a little visit this weekend, and it felt nothing less than perfect.  The beginning of each season is always so refreshing, so getting this little taste of wonderful weather made us appreciate just walking around our neighborhood and eating meals outside all the more.  It has been a long winter (as I'm sure many of you have experienced) and this break in the cold was much needed.

So, our first Dinner Club guests were wonderful and I can't wait to do it again soon.  If this is something you are considering, I highly recommend it.  (And if you don't know what I'm talking about, check out my last post.)  Having a great night with friends is all the motivation I needed to set a date with our next round of guests.  I tried my hand at baked falafel tacos that night and they were really good.  I've never baked falafel before and the consistency was a little crumbly, but once you put it in a taco you don't even notice anymore.  Although, trying new recipes on new guests is always a little scary.  ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful and refreshing weekend!

  6. We've been having the same same whiplash of cold/spring here in Kansas too! I absolutely love the dinner club idea too. I get so so nervous trying out new recipes on guests, but it's always so fun then when it ends up working out.

  10. Your dinner club sounds like such a great idea! We've been having warmth here, too, and I've been loving it! I hope it stays this way...

  11. glad your dinner was a success! i've been trying my hand at new recipes lately & i'm always a bucket of nerves wondering whether it will turn out (my last attempt was for Valentines dinner - & thankfully it worked! haha)
    we're starting to get hints of fall down here in Australia & i couldn't be happier! it's my favourite season & summer has been just a little too intense for my liking! have a happy week

  13. Your outfit is absolutely adorable! I'm so glad that spring stopped in for a day or two with us a well. It was MUCH needed as I'm going a little stir-crazy in my small apartment and cold, cold days (I'm sure everyone feels this way too!). I love having guests over for dinner and I'm thinking about starting a new blog series about it! It's a little scary trying new recipes on new people, but I'm always sure to have two rules: 1. make it simple and 2. always have a quick back-up!


  14. Your style of dress is really cute :). I love earth tones. I'm enjoying these pictures too, a nice little sneak peak into what Spring will offer.

    I'm pretty decent at baking, but when it comes to cooking...yeah, maybe I shouldn't mention it, haha.

  15. What great photos looks like you had a wonderful day!
