Last night was dinner with Izzy and it was my turn this week.
I have written before how we love salad bar night around here and it’s even more fun when we can share it with guests.
Last night I put on the works and served an array of toppings including bacon, avocado, shredded carrots, cucumber, pickled beets, hard boiled eggs, slivered almonds, dried cranberries, tuna, garbanzo beans, edamame and quinoa.
I roasted an entire cast iron skillet of sweet potatoes doused in coconut oil and made a batch of pita chips.
It’s so much fun setting the bar up but it’s just as much fun seeing everybody’s creations.
And there is always a trip back for seconds.

Love the shot of the kitchen looking toward the broom (and the rocket backpack!).
Hi Amy! Do you by chance follow Ashley Ann Campbell’s blog? I think you would enjoy her if you don’t already, but I read her post today (http://ashleyannphotography.com/blog/2015/01/13/knock-knock-jokes-feeling-sad-creating-a-refuge/) regarding thoughts about making a home a refuge (as well as the link to the Sally Clarkson post on the same topic) and then I click over her to your blog . . . clearly your home is a refuge for your family and friends. You do a wonderful job at it. There is a quote by J. Savrin in the Sally Clarkson post: “To invite someone into your home is to take charge of their happiness for as long as they are under your roof.” I think that’s exactly what brings your readers back again and again. As always, thanks for sharing!
