It’s been such a fun weekend at the McCormick’s. If You didn’t know better you would think we had a party hall and catering company at our house!

Time for SUMMER parties!!!!!

Friday we had a surprise birthday party for our good friend Brian at our house.

Amy (his girlfriend) and I stayed up late the night before making stuffed shells. I used my go-to Giatta recipe! Along with a tomato bruschetta and Cesar salads. It was an amazing feast.

I made a pesto chicken salad for myself. Super simple, lettuce, Costco pesto, and grilled shredded chicken.

Lots of bocci ball was played and chatting took place, backyard parties are the best.

Amy and I also made ice cream cupcakes! These were a huge hit. We made two kinds. One with brownie on the bottom and mint chip ice cream and the other with vanilla cake and moose tracks. These are so easy!

Thanks to Fresh & Easy we were able to have a wine tasting throughout the evening.
