Hi loves! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and was able to spend some quality time with loved ones. It was great having those days off to simply enjoy my family and friends.
Wednesday night my friend Ali came over for dinner. We’ve been best friends since middle school and right now she lives in Charleston SC so it’s always so important to spend as much qt with each other when she comes into town. We can talk for endless hours and decided to go to dinner at Taverna Corvino which is right down the street from my house. I went a few weeks ago with my friend Britt as well, it’s so so good there.
It’s an italian tapas restaurant so we got lots of different dishes to try. We got some type of soup with egg ribbons inside. We weren’t exactly sure what it was, but it was tasty!
We ordered the asparagus with a poached egg
butternut squash ravioli, swoon. my fav
the most delicious veggie panini
Wednesday nights the restaurant offers a wine tasting. $15 for 5 different wines. Ali is a big fan of red, and i’m a big fan of white so we were able to split the tasting. At the end, we got to roll a pair of dice. We ended up rolling a lucky number 7 and got a $15 gift card to use the next time we go to the restaurant! Perfect dinner 🙂
This year we had Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve. My sister is studying abroad in China for 3 weeks and her flight left Christmas day so we gathered the family for an amazing meal a day early.
Mom put the wine outside to chill
We had our desserts set up, a pecan pie, and I brought the pumpkin streussel bread that I also made on Thanksgiving, and we had mini spinach pies for an appetizer.
My mom made the most delicious baked brie with apricot preserves this time.
Our dinner spread consisted of broccoli salad, pot roast, yorkshire puddings ( which my mom learned to make while we lived in England, they are very popular there to have on Sunday dinners), roasted parsnips and carrots, spinach and artichoke casserole, and roasted potatoes.
Absolutely amazing. I hope one day that I can cook as well as my mom.
I can’t believe Christmas has come and gone already. This season flew by so quickly. Hope you guys had some great times and some great eats this weekend ❤
