Sister Saturday & Girls' Night In

Last night I met some friends for a short happy hour before heading home. Jason went camping with his dad and brother, so I was flying solo. That didn't mean no pizza for Pizza Friday. I ended up making myself a mini socca pizza for dinner.

I enjoyed that with a glass of wine snuggled on the couch with the pups watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I have no idea why, but I just love that show. Maybe it's just Guy's personality. It's usually not the food as it's rarely meatless. Anyway, a guilty pleasure I suppose.

As I mentioned yesterday, today I am hosting a Girls' Night In. Not a big shindig, just a few friends over - PJs are the required attire (similar to last year's PJs n' Pizza Party). I don't know about you, but sometimes my excuse for not going to a party or event is because I'd rather be in my PJs. So this works out quite nicely.

My sister is coming up this morning and we're planning on running. So, I've just been piddling around doing chores. Very exciting I know - mopping, dusting, wiping down counters. Don't be jealous please ;-) Basically, I've just been wasting time until she gets here.

Since we're planning on running, there is no point in getting ready for the day. I must say, it's kind of nice spending the morning in my PJs not rushing around. And I get to put them back on again this evening. I'm kind of liking this routine.

I really don't know what all we are going to end up doing today. Might do some window shopping, or just sit around the house visiting. It really doesn't matter too much, anytime we get together is good time to me.

In order to make the party more fun and relaxed, I'm going with an easy menu plan. Just doing some chips and dips to snack on then making Black Bean and Tempeh Enchiladas for dinner. It might sound complicated, but they are going to be pretty easy to throw together - especially with the help of my sister.

Oh, and can't forget dessert. Last night while I was making my socca pizza, I also made some Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookie Balls. I figured they would be enjoyed for my girls' night gathering. They are so incredibly simple to make, but oh so tasty.

I imagine I'll be mostly MIA from the computer today. I promise to take lots of pictures today and share the enchilada recipe tomorrow. Happy Saturday!
