BBQ with New Friends

Lat night, we had dinner with a group of new friends from our Condo development.
It was great to hang out with a group of people in our area- and we had a FEAST!

My contribution: Garden Salad

- Fresh Herb Salad (Lettuce, Dill, Cilantro, Parsley)
- Peppers
- Blanched Asparagus
- Toasted Pine Nuts
- Caramelized Onions
- Goat Cheese

The Cheese Game

Ok... so J. and I play what we call "the cheese game." We buy this budget cheese, and it's all $8.99. The thing is, it tells you, by weight, how much the cheese would have been if you paid regular price.

So, while shopping for cheese, whoever gets the cheese that would have been worth the most, wins.

Average Price in the Cheese Game: $12.50
Good Price in the Cheese Game: $13.00
The Winner in the Cheese Game: $13.80-ish.

These numbers are about normal- and seeing as I am pretty competitive, I usually win this game.

Then the other day, J comes home with this!!!!!

WTH!!?? He claims he just randomly picked it out... ya right. I know when I have been beat. It's an all time record. I have NEVER seen a cheese over $14.00

So we planted some seeds in the community garden, and ended up with an endless supply of peas. That is until they met an unfortunate end. But I won't get into that now :P
