This past Sunday, I woke up late because I had TOO MUCH WINE on Saturday night. Kevin and I went to an engagement party for one of his friends and I didnt know many people there. It was a great party with tons of great appetizers and every drink you could every imagine. But, since I wasnt doing much talking, I did more drinking and eating than usual. Oops.
After waking up, I immediately started pulling together Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti. A good friend of mine has had a challenging few weeks after finding out her 27 year old sister has melanoma. This casserole was delivered down to Northern VA Sunday afternoon and we are all hoping (and praying) for a quick recovery.
My parents decided to join me and bring along a sweet potato pie, so my friend and her family would have dessert to go along with the casserole. We also were able to visit with my great Aunt who lives in Fairfax, VA - near a restaurant called ARTIE's. I have been hearing great things about this place for awhile now, so we stopped in for lunch.After we were seated with drinks (water for me), the waitress brought out a basket full of delectable treats. HOT donut holes/sweet bread covered in sugar and cinnamon and dense carrot bread. They were both incredible and I immediately liked this place.
Next up, we ordered the Blue Crab Fritters as an appetizer for us all to share. The Blue Crab Fritters were served with grilled corn salsa and lobster ginger butter. When we first saw the plate, we were skeptical what this was exactly.
