girls night out {BFF edition}

last friday my BFF sara and i went out to Food Dance! (if you live around Kalamazoo, you MUST go there. MUST!) we spent the night eating lots of tasty noms and catching up (because motherhood is a full time job, and we don't see each other nearly as much as we'd like to!)

{i had a mint julep and sara had the most amazing raspberry martini to ever grace the earth}

our appetizer. flatbread pizza with seared creamed sweet corn sauce, goat cheese, chicken, zuchinni, and basil.

...........i'm sorry! i was wishing this butternut squash was still in front of me. it was stuffed with israeli couscous, olives, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, goat cheese, and topped with this wonderful curried yogurt and slivered almonds. (i took half of it home, and it reheated wonderfully!) i'm SO going to try to recreate this.

yes, that IS the most amazing cornish hen nestled on a bed of creamy polenta and wild mushrooms. i'm so glad sara loves me enough to let me steal bites off her plate!

we hit the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange for dessert. hard cider (apple raspberry for me, blackberry pear for her) and white chocolate bread pudding. YUM.

we stopped for doughnuts on the way home too. (:

i hope all of you have a Sara in your life. i cherish mine.
happy friday, y'all! what are your weekend plans?
