This past weekend we had a cooking/dinner competition with two other couples. It was so much fun! And to top if off... we won! The idea of the whole event was to pick a theme and plan a dinner around it. We scored each other on things like taste, plating, theme, etc.

Night 1: Lauren & Kyle did a Texas BBQ theme. (I wish i had taken pictures because it was amazing.... she went all out with the theme.) There were cow balloons, bandanas, miny bales of hay, sheriff badges, strawberry lemonade, ribs, corn on the cob.... just great.

Night 2: Yours truly. We did Japanese! Austin's family makes this dish called Sukiyaki. It's made up of udon noodles, cabbage, beef, mushrooms, tofu, onions, and lots of soy sauce. You cook it in front of everyone and they watch your skills. Aka: Austin's skills. We had authentic Japanese bowls and used Aust's blanket as a tablecloth- super fun night.

Night 3: Mollie & Levi did Louisiana Cajun! Mardi Gras decorations and all. Their meal included shrimp, grits, some type of warm vegetable salad ($), and gator juice! Delicious.

After dinner on nights two and three we played RAGE. We got this card game for our wedding and we can't get enough of it!! Needless to say, it was a fabulous weekend annnnnnnnnnnnnnddddddd we are starting to have married friends!
