Our Sunday Night Dinners have been a little more sporadic this summer as weekend trips, summer events, and life in general has made it a little more difficult to keep up with our regular schedule, so it was nice to finally manage a weekend to get together.
This dinner was actually a couple of weeks ago. Andrew and I spent the day out and about meeting up with friends for breakfast before heading to Cirque du Soleil for the afternoon show. It was approximately a bajillion degrees out, but thankfully the tent was air conditioned.
We’ve seen a number of Cirque du Soleil shows in the past few years and this one was as entertaining as ever. Definitely not my favorite, but certainly an enjoyable afternoon out.
After the show we headed to Jen and Evan’s a bit early for dinner. When we got there, Jen was prepping a delicious meal. She started her first garden this year and the bounty has been plentiful! The green salad was made entirely from things she grew herself, which I can attest tasted way better than the grocery store produce.
The salad was only the lead-in for the slow cooker ribs and corn salad. I didn’t realize how hungry I was until we sat down to eat, but it was the perfect summer meal to cap off a great summer day!
