recipe for weekend fun

2 college friends + happy hour + gourmet pizza + s’mores = weekend amazingness

ashley, me & alexis
this past weekend, ashley & alexis visited (yay!).  they came out saturday afternoon to see our place, and then we ventured out for some festivities.  we took them to our favorite happy hour spot, bobby simone’s, for drinks and appetizers.  i (of course) got a cosmo, the rest got beer.  we ordered some wings and chicken quesadillas to wash our drinks down with : )  we then surprised the girls with a shot.  please do not judge it by its name.  it’s called a “dirty girlscout”, and it’s dessert in a shot glass.  1 ounce coffee liqueur, 1 ounce irish cream, 1 ounce créme de menthe, 1 ounce vodka.  it takes like liquid thin mints or melted mint chocolate chip ice cream.  we sipped our shots with smiles.

my sis, hannah, joined us, and we walked over to jules thin crust.  this fabulous little pizza place that makes gourmet pies (all from local, organic ingredients).  yum!  i ordered two slices – one with roasted potato, fresh mozzarella, rosemary, scallions, sour cream, parmesan and olive oil, the other “kim’s pie” had roasted chicken, portobello mushroom, caramelized onion, mozzarella, balsamic bbq sauce, chives.  omg.  with a glass of ménage à trios red wine, the meal was complete : )

we found this on our walk...
craig's pizza
on the way home, we made a pit stop at wawa for s’mores fixins’.  when we got back to our place, we started a fire in the fireplace and toasted marshmallows (and watched a marathon of say yes to the dress).  there is nothing like an ooey-gooey, homemade s’more (or girly reality tv show) to complete any night. 


(no fireplace?  no problem.  a small candle will do just fine.  or a gas stove burner on low.  or even assemble your s’more and microwave it for a few seconds until the marshmallow is gooey and chocolate is melted.  don’t microwave for too long or the marshmallow with get super tough.)

my pizza: kim's pie & roasted potato
the next morning, we enjoyed coffee with strata and orange cranberry muffins (recipes {here}) before they had to head out : (

thanks (as usual) for a great time, ladies!
