Being out of town the past two weekends I was thrilled knowing we would be staying put this weekend.
Our plan was to catch up with people we haven't seen in a while.
We kicked off the weekend by meeting The Mrs. and The Mister for dinner and drinks.
Of course, Sarah and I have hung out several times on our own, but it was the first time our husbands had met and I think it was a success!
Can't wait for the 4 of us to catch up again soon.
Saturday we were up early doing the 5,134 errands on our list.
By noon I was making a strawberry cheesecake for a cookout later in the evening at our neighbor's Lulu and Keith's house.
It's been a while since we've seen them and the other neighbors.
Since strawberries are in season I knew I wanted to make some sort of strawberry dessert.
Originally I thought of making a shortcake but decided on this no bake cheesecake instead.
Let's establish one thing.
I'm a big cheesecake lover but not of the NY style cheesecake.
I'm a fan of those cream cheese/no bake style pies/cakes.
So this one was PERFECT!
Almost a chiffon style pie!
Everyone loved it because it was fluffy and light!!
I can't wait to make it again this Summer and add blueberries for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July.
Lulu and Keith outdid themselves on their cookout.
She'll have details over at her blog.
It was a GREAT way to kickoff Spring in the neighborhood!
I can't wait to get together again and try out some more fun, new recipes!
The six of us are already planning our next progressive dinner!
As for Sunday...
It was a lazy day even though I did manage to get out and walk 2-miles and finish a book.
I'm trying to rest up because I'm heading back to California for work this week.
So, how was your weekend?
